Game 27 Open Thread: Nationals at Phillies

Who's ready to hear Phillies fans boo Jayson Werth!?

Look at him. He's magnificent.

Oh my god a game! A real live baseball game! One that includes the Phillies! It's true! This is exciting. The rain and the offdays have made for an oddly Phillies-free week, and now it's time to get back to baseball. Woo!

Oh lordy, the Phillies are facing the Nationals? Ugh, that means ridiculous, unnecessary booing of Jayson Werth. The man helped the 2008 Phillies get a World Series ring. Without him, the team might not have done that! The man should drink free in Philadelphia for the rest of his life! But no, instead he's roundly booed every time he steps into the box at Citizens Bank Park.

For the love of god stop booing Jayson Werth.
