Jayson Werth is in the final year of his contract and he’s looking to get paid. And why not? Werth was a late bloomer so he missed the chance to make real money earlier in his career. Given the past few seasons he’s had in Philadelphia, he’s in a good position to cash in this winter.â†µ
To help him with that, he’s hired super agent Scott Boras. Boras has handled the majority of the mega deals in baseball over the past several years.â†µ
Werth says for him the move was about having the best reputation he could get.â†µ
I know for me it’s just a matter of being comfortable with reputation and having a guy that I want to have representing me in this process.â†µ
With Boras’ reputation being a guy who doesn’t take a single cent below what he can get, Phils fans are certainly worried that his hire means the Phils will be priced out of Werth this winter.
