Carl Crawford is smiling from ear to ear right now.
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.
The Nationals would have been better off keeping Adam Dunn IMHO.
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.
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.
