Jayson Werth hates the Phillies. This is an OUTRAGE!

I was all ready to write something about this strange Thomas Boswell piece for the Washington Post, extolling the virtues of famous grit-machine Jayson Werth, with the promise of more grit to come in Washington, DC, for the moribund Nationals!

It would have been a real snooze but for a little context free quote at the article's midpoint:

Once Werth got back behind the cage, Rizzo said, "I hate the [expletive] Phillies." The GM then ran off a list of borderline dirty plays and purpose pitches in recent years by the Nats' nemesis. "I hate the Phillies, too," said Werth. Unspoken, but hanging in the air was a new idea for the Nats: So, let's play more like the Phillies: mean, grimy and a little nasty.

But there's literally nothing to say. A professional athlete made an off-the-cuff remark. This doesn't hurt me. It doesn't hurt you. I'd actually be disappointed if Jayson Werth didn't give a damn and didn't "hate" the Phillies on some level.

Anyway, hello everyone. Wake me in April.
