Nationals' collapse 'hard to swallow,' Werth says

Jayson Werth did all he could to help the Washington Nationals win on Monday, slugging two home runs in an 8-7 defeat of his former Philadelphia Phillies, but he knows it will take more than just a pair of home runs for the Nats to make the playoffs. It'll take an outright miracle. Even with a win on Monday, Washington is 9 ½ games back of the NL East-leading New York Mets with...

Bryce Harper doesn’t seem to care if Nationals make playoffs

To hear it from Bryce Harper, it doesn’t matter much if the Washington Nationals make the playoffs or not. In fact, he doesn’t particularly seem to care. Or that’s at least how it sounded when the superstar slugger was asked to weigh in on the plight that the struggling and sputtering Nationals find themselves in as the division rival New York Mets continue to distance themselves...

Werth on trailing Mets: 'It's easier to chase than be chased'

Jayson Werth suggests that trailing the New York Mets in the NL East standings as opposed to Washington Nationals leading the division puts the team in an arguably advantageous position, as being the pursued is harder than being the ones in pursuit. “I don’t mind being in stalking position,” Werth said. “When you make the run at it down the stretch, it’s easier to chase...

Jayson Werth kicked out of Nats' fantasy football league

It turns out that Jayson Werth was that guy in the Washington Nationals’ fantasy football league. The outfielder is in the fourth year of a seven-year, $126 million contract with the Nats, but that didn’t stop him from being so late with his league payment that his teammates decided it would be best to kick him out. “We kicked Jayson Werth out of the league this year,” reliever...
