Jayson Werth Hit His Own Truck With A Home Run

Screen shot 2012-03-25 at 5.11.48 PM
After signing with Washington for $126 million over seven years, Jayson Werth struggled last season… big time.

Call it what you want – lack of plate discipline, faulty mechanics, bad facial hair, whatever. At the end of the day, his numbers were not good, and he finished the season with a .232 average.

The Nationals have insisted that this season will be different for both Werth and the team as a whole. Look no further than the "Take Back The Park" nonsense.

They'll need some better luck than Jayson Werth had today when he blasted a home run. Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post described the shot as "the hardest-hit ball he's hit as a National" and noted that the ball was hit clear out of the stadium. That's the good part.

The bad part? A groundskeeper told him the ball hit his truck.

"Can't win," Werth told reporters afterward, though noting he hadn't confirmed his stroke of bad luck, calling it, for now, "folklore."



We'll assume it wasn't the sweet Porsche Panamera that Werth was driving last year.

  1. Hahahahaha I actually just laughed out loud in my apartment and I’m the only one in here. Yeah, they’re better than the 08 Phils…sure….

  2. As Jonny said, the Porsche Panamera is NOT A TRUCK, dummy!
    For all the National bashing you guys (Drew, Kyle) do, you better hope to hell they don’t beat up on the Phils this year, with the way the Phillies are falling apart, BEFORE the season even starts, it’s starting to get uncomfortable.

  3. Let it go.
    Werth is gone.
    He makes $52,000 a day.
    He can buy a fleet of trucks.
    Get over it CB !!!!
