    Wow---$18 million a season for a soon to be 32 year old outfielder. Werth is a good player but he is not werth that much.

    Second and third tier teams often have to overbid for guys like Werth in order to get them to sign.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Werth has played 8 years and had 2 good seasons, he'll soon be 32 years old.

    Too steep of a price tag if you ask me.

    I cant decide whats more surprising. The years, the money, or the team that signed him.

    Yes, and then Scott Boras compares his guy and demands Jason Werth money.

    The Nationals would have been better off keeping Adam Dunn IMHO.

    Exactly...what are they thinking? I know Werth is an above average defensive outfielder but offensively he seems very streaky and I'd rather have dunn's numbers anyway. Either way I'm glad he didn't go the cliche'd way and sign with the Yanks or Sox.

    Werth has averaged 5 wins above replacement each of the past 3 years. Dunn was a 1.5 win player as an outfielder and 3.9 last year as a 1B. Either way you slice it, Werth has been much more valuable as a player than Dunn. He's worth the money, right now, they're paying relative to Dunn.

    I don't think this is a good contract, mind you. I think they'll get 3-4 good years out of him at most. But right now, they're better with Werth than they were with Dunn.

    I'd rather have Dunn and pay him what he's making the next few years than to have Werth and have to pay him what he's making for the next few years.

    I'd rather Werth for the first 4 years, Dunn over the last 3 years.

    In other words, Werth at $17M for 4 years is better than Dunn at $14M, but I ceertainly wouldn't want to pay those years 5-7.

    Werth just signed for slightly more than Matt Holliday signed for last year. This is the reason why players want Scott Boras to be their agent.
