According to this, The Nats give Jason Werth $126M for 7 years ($18M/yr). Werth will be 38 went this contract is over. Would/should the Bucs have offered this to Werth? I think not.. I like Werth, but not for 7 years at $18M/yr.
Yes we need a RFer, but this is too long a committment. The Nats are making a big commitment but I don't see the talent in their system to capitalize on it. Who knows how good Strasberg will be when/if he comes back?
As for Werth, I guess he went for the money. Playing for the Nats is about playing for the Bucs, but I like the Bucs future better. I doubt if Werth earns any more rings with the Nats.
