Was it Werth it? Jayson Contract shakes up the winter meetings!
Seven years and one hundred and tweny six million dollars. Let that sink in. While I realize a team with the stature of The Washington Nationals have to over pay to attract top free agent talent to DC, I just have to wonder who the second highest bidder was? And for how much? Considering that he will be 32 at the start of this deal, and that most estimates had Werth signing for around four years and sixty million dollars, I am ready to vote Scott Boras into the Baseball Hall of Fame. If Marvin Miller gets in for revolutionizing baseball salaries, and George Steinbrenner gets in for being a maverick owner, then Boras should get in for being the most successful agent in the history of Major League Baseball.
