Jayson Werth's 2011 production

By Dan Steinberg

I think we can all agree that there are many ways to measure Jayson Werth's value to the Nats -- as a strong defensive outfielder, as an athletic middle-of-the-order bat, as a lure for fans, as a bearded American, and so on. Batting average and RBI are, perhaps, not the best ways to measure Werth.

Still, Bodog.com didn't send out 2011 WAR over/unders, so I'll deal with what I've got. Here are the over/unders the site recently listed for several of this month's biggest acquisitions.

2011 Batting Average

Carl Crawford: .299
Adrian Gonzalez: .282
Jayson Werth: .275
Adam Dunn: .252
Carlos Pena: .245

2011 HR

Adam Dunn: 37.5
Adrian Gonzalez: 35.5
Carlos Pena: 32.5
Jayson Werth: 27.5

2011 RBI

Adam Dunn: 99.5
Adrian Gonzalez: 99.5
Jayson Werth: 85.5

How about an over/under for when he needs season ending surgery? Or even games played? These are the things we have to worry about when any DC team over-pays an old free agent. Sorry for being pessimistic.

Carlos Pena at .245 is over 20% improvement which is huge in change in batting average.

in fairness, it's not werth vs. dunn. offensively its werth + replacement first basemen vs dunn + the 2011 RF platoon that would have been.
