The Washington Nationals dropped their fifth straight game and seventh of their last eight on Wednesday afternoon, falling 6-4 to the Milwaukee Brewers. Afterwards, Jayson Werth, the $126 million man who is used to winning or competing for World Series crowns, had a thinly-veiled message to his team. Via Ben Goessling of MASNSports.com.
"I've got some ideas, obviously, and some thoughts, none I really want to share with the world," Werth said. "But I think it's pretty obvious what's going on right here. ... I'm not going to get into it right now. It is what it is. It's unfortunate. We're a way better ballclub."
Awww, c'mon Jayson. Can't spill the beans? With how badly the Nationals are struggling anyway, does it really matter if you hurt anyone's feelings? WE WANT DRAMA!
In all seriousness, unless Werth has a magical plan to turn Michael Morse, Laynce Nix (who is actually playing well) and Jerry Hairston into functional Major League hitters, I'm not sure what he can do.
