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.
