Jayson Werth says Philly invasions will end
Here's the best thing I've seen emerge from Wednesday's Jayson Werth press conference: his six-shooter cuff links. Pretty sure I've got an identical set.
Incidentally, Werth was on with LaVar and Dukes, and the latter asked him what it would be like losing home-field advantage at Nats Park.
"That's gonna change quick," Werth said. "I think you guys are gonna see. The owners are on board, and Mike Rizzo's done a good job. The reason those people come over here is they don't have a chance to watch their team in Philadelphia. And as soon as we start filling the seats here with Nats fans, those people are gonna go away and we're gonna regain home-field advantage. And I'm looking forward to that day, for sure."
Me too. Werth kept up that optimism through the entire day. It was an impressive showing.
"I'm looking forward to getting this team here in Washington on the same page and getting everybody moving in the right direction," he said. "The Lerner family has assured me they're going to do the things and take the steps needed to build this franchise. They've done the steps the last few years to get the minor leagues and the younger talent in place, and going forward they've assured me that they're going to do what it takes to get more guys like me over here, and get a winning atmosphere, and fill the seats every night, and get the city on board, and just create a place where everybody's proud of the product on the field."
