Did the Phillies Offer Werth a Contract?

Tom Byrne of 97.5 The Fanatic reports that a source told him the Phillies have offered Jayson Werth a contract and they believe it is enough to bring him back.

That, folks, would be shocking news.  We've all but come to terms with Werth leaving, and since he's probably going to command around $16 million a year, that seemed to be a safe assumption.

What could have happened here?  The Phillies may have indeed offered Werth a contract.  Of course they would think it is enough to bring him back.  Whatever the offer was, realistic or not, they are going to say they think it was enough.  What's the alternative?

I'm not going to do jumping jacks yet, but it certainly is interesting.

  1. Well, it couldn’t hurt to try. Werth& Boras should know Amaro well enough to know that it was THE offer. If they wait on it or try to get him to raise it, he will move quickly to his plan B.

  2. Phil from Mt. Airy just reported on 97.5 The Fanatic that he has a source that says the Phillies latest offer to Werth is for 3 years $18 million per season with an option for a 4th season.
