And Now, Fun with the Nats: Jayson Werth’s Error Loses Game in Extra Innings, Nats Fans Hate the Tomahawk Chop

Screen shot 2011-04-06 at 11.08.07 AM
This should make you feel a little bit better about last night- just a little.

Jayson Werth dropped a popup in extra innings, which eventually allowed the winning run to score with two outs.

Thus far with the Nationals, Werth is batting .333 with no home runs or RBIs. Production!

Of course, people are now actually watching Nats games. Opening Day in Washington averaged a 2.71 rating, which equals around 65,000 households. That number was up 65% from last year. Meanwhile, in Philadelphia, the Phillies averaged a 9.9 rating on Friday, which equals around 300,000 households. That number was up 43% from last year. On Sunday, the Phillies avarged a 14.8 rating- or around 445,000 households. The Nats' weekend average? 58,000 households. Heh.


Hop it for a video (taken last week) of a Nats fan freaking out about seeing the Tomahawk Chop. This ain't Atlanta!

Don't forget, there are still tickets to come with us to see Werth in D.C. next Thursday! Details here.

    It’s been four games. He’s had 17 ABs. He’s had two at bats with RISP (that’s runners in scoring position, by the way), and four at-bats with men on base. He is 1-for-2 and 2-for-4, respectively. It’s really hard to get RBIs when you don’t have guys on base ahead of you.
    He’s also got three doubles and is hitting second (not an RBI spot) and is playing for the Nationals. Ever think about that?
    It’s the first week of the season. For someone who seems to care how much Werth talks about the Phillies, you spend an awful lot of bandwidth talking about Werth.

  2. (wonders if “Jay” is the old man in the video posted above, because surely there can’t be more than one Nats fan)

  3. Hey! What’s the difference between Jason Werth and Luis Castillo? Eh, about 125.5 mil.
