Jayson Werth continues to annoy. According to a report from Jon Heyman, Werth is trying to sell Ryan Madson on playing in the nation’s capital: []

The Nationals are a candidate for Madson if he leaves the Phillies; ex-Phillies teammate Jayson Werth is trying to sell Madson on the Nats.


Not much there, but I’d really like to know what the pitch is: Hey, great group of youngsters. I hate it here. There are no fans. Watching October baseball makes me ill. But the Lerners are just stoopid with their money. I bought a mansion and six Bentleys and didn't even hit .240. How crazy is that?!

All joking aside, the Nationals will field a competitive team over the next few years, especially if Bryce Harper makes the show and is even half as good as he thinks he is. Adding Madson at the back end of the bullpen, which already includes Tyler Clippard and Drew Storen, would make for quite the upgrade.
