That was, truly, one of the greatest things I've ever witnessed. He acted like he was going to give the Philly fans a foul ball, then dropped it in the Nats dugout, then got a HUGE 2-out, 2-strike 2-RBI hit that blew the game wide open. $126 million was worth it for that. You're not winners anymore, Philly. You just live in Philly now. In 2 years DC is gonna be filling up YOUR stadium when OUR team comes to town, and you know what? We'll be far classier about it than you ever were. Karma's a biatch.

I'm only a kinda sorta Nats fan, but I hate Philly (the whole city. I hate you all. Dig a trench, redirect the river, and send the whole trashy place to New Jersey where it will fit in) so this is awesome

I hope the nats get swept in the playoffs because of their retarded decision to bench Strasbourg or however you spell his name. And I hope they don't make the playoffs again while he's there.

You don't sit your best pitcher when you have a shot at the World Series.

Jason werth is my new best friend for his actions, though. Even if he looks homeless

DC is a city of transplants and will never give a shiat about the Nationals. NTTAWWT, but they're not going to be filling stadiums on the road, ever. It also doesn't exactly exude class, more like undeserved self-importance.

That was a properly good prank by Werth though, +1 for Jason. :)

Last time the Phillies were in DC the games were on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.. DC people have jobs and things to take care of during the week. Philly fans don't have to worry about such things except maybe checking in with their parole officer (who can probably be bribed anyway).

Funny thing about that. When I lived in Northeast PA it was always amusing to check the police blotter and compare the number of people arrested who actually lived in the area, and the number of people from Philly.

Seemed like for being a few hours down I-476 the Philly population was overrepresented in our local crime stats.

That would mean the Eagles tried to run the ball and that aint happening. If you have the Giants as your D in Fantasy Football this could be a record week between turnovers and sacks I expect at least 4 of each.

I cannot believe how unwilling they are to give the ball to their best player. I had McCoy on my fantasy team for two years, and I was always amazed/infuriated at the number of series that would go by without them giving him the ball, and the number of short-yardage passes they threw.

rag819: They sat Gio Gonzalez?


No, they sat down the (near) rookie to bring in their season opener for the last two years. He's 4-0 right now.

Strasburg was not throwing well, looked tired, and needed the rest. When the season opened, nobody expected this, so it couldn't have been handled differently. Love all you that gots to have that try at the ring and are happy to risk somebody's career to get it.

You just don't understand the genius of Andy Reid he's smarter than anyone in football. As an Eagles fan I root for then to lose (yes "lose" not "loose", sorry something I hate more than a coach who won't run the ball.) because the Eagles will never win a Super Bowl until they get rid of Reid and his "I know more than them and will do it my way even though my way has won a damn thing in 14 years." attitude

I'd say most people get it with American or Provolone. I don't know why you'd want Mozzeralla if you weren't having a pizza steak since Mozzerally doesn't really have a lot of flavor.

Plus Philly food goes way beyond the cheesesteak. For the great food/affordability combo, Philly is among the tops in the country. It's like NYC but you pay $18-25 an entre instead of $25-$35 for some real nice, high-end food.

Or you can go to Reading Terminal Market and stuff your face with some really awesome fare for $8.

I believe the difference between Philly and NYC is that New Yorkers don't care if you don't like them, which is at least consistent with the disposition. Philly wants to lay claim to the "most passionate fans in America" title, and then biatch about how they're all just misunderstood and they're really just like the normal fans they shiat on. I mean completely dismissing the inferiority complex it has toward New York, it's just so bizarre and pathetic to dismiss all the "haters" for not appreciating their "passionate fans", and then work double duty to say Philly doesn't get a fair shake and that people just stereotype and we didn't really throw snowballs at santa or we did but he deserved it or waaaaaaaaaah pleaseeeee like meeeeee.

What DOES amuse me is the fictitious history of "die hard fandom" the fat-titted slobs in Philadelphia have dreamt up, when it's a matter of public record that the Phillies draw terribly when they're not winning - like we can't mosey on over to any stat tracker, and see that just 10 years ago they drew 22k/game for a team that finished 86/76, and followed that up by only drawing 20k/game the following year. U JELLY REST OF MLB? U JELLY U WONT HAVE AN ENTIRE SECTION TO YOURSELF NEXT YEAR TO WATCH RYAN HOWARD SET A NEW RECORD FOR UNDERPERFOMANCE?

Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: That was, truly, one of the greatest things I've ever witnessed. He acted like he was going to give the Philly fans a foul ball, then dropped it in the Nats dugout, then got a HUGE 2-out, 2-strike 2-RBI hit that blew the game wide open. $126 million was worth it for that. You're not winners anymore, Philly. You just live in Philly now. In 2 years DC is gonna be filling up YOUR stadium when OUR team comes to town, and you know what? We'll be far classier about it than you ever were. Karma's a biatch.


It was one of the most classless things I ever saw. Here's the Werth account:

"I was going to flip the ball. There was a group of kids. Behind the kids there were these unruly middle-aged men that to me appeared to be snarling. It's the ninth. Who knows. I kind of got the sense that maybe they were intoxicated. I was going to flip it to the kids, and then I thought, maybe I shouldn't, because of the people right behind the innocent little children there."

You know the man is lying out his arse. He played in Philly and he should know the proper condition for any self-respecting Phillie fan at the top of the 9th at the end of a long, miserable, disappointing season is to not just be intoxicated but near comatose from all the brewskis drunk. He kind of got the sense. Riiiight and I'm the Dalai Lama. But, here's two reasons why it's totally classless for Werth:

1. $126 million that he might not have had had he stayed buried in the Dodger organization. It was only because of his performance in a Phillie uni that he managed to get that contract.

2. I'm unaware that anyone in Philadelphia ever held it against Werth for leaving for the big bucks that Washington dangled in front of him. I really don't think anybody gave him any grief last year, but the way he was underperforming last year to earn his paycheck, trying to razz him would have been an act of cruelty, like pulling the wings off of flies.

You're going to be filling Citizen's Bank Park? Have at it, your money is as green as anyone's, but what are you going to do to fill your stadium which has sold out how many games this championship season for you?

You could have replaced "Philly" with "Boston" and still been 100% correct.

On the other hand, lots of New Yorkers think that people like them because they're from New York. You won't find many people in Philly with a similar delusion.

They razzed him when he broke his arm. I don't get it. He played well when he was here. It's not like he left for $126M instead of $122 or something. The Phillies would have probably offered him something like 5/75, tops (which is probably reasonable - the Nats overpaid like crazy - but anyone would leave for that).

Yuuuup. And, frankly, the Nats had to overpay like that to get anyone to come to DC after 2010. A year like this wasn't a twinkle in Davey Johnson's eye at that point. Nobody wanted to get any of the stink around here on them. Fast forward 2 years: they didn't pay Prince Fielder, the Lerners are billionaires, and they have tons of young players they can afford to lock up while also carrying Werth till he hits Medicare. After a night like last night, exorcising some demons up in Philly... I think it was werth it. He's not the best player in the league, but he's a gamer and a winner. It sure helps having guys like that around.

Spade: you have pee hands: Spade: Yeah, because people in DC have important shiat to do. If they're not winning, we've got more important things to worry about. As opposed to Philly, where they care all the time about their sports teams because otherwise they'd have nothing to do besides collect welfare checks and commit crimes.

Important stuff, like things. As opposed to committing crimes.

Are you autistic?

Shouldn't you be out running drugs or something?

Funny thing about that. When I lived in Northeast PA it was always amusing to check the police blotter and compare the number of people arrested who actually lived in the area, and the number of people from Philly.

Seemed like for being a few hours down I-476 the Philly population was overrepresented in our local crime stats.


Salesmen of north-eastern Pennsylvania, I ask you once more rise and be worthy of this historical hour.

Galloping Galoshes: rag819: They sat Gio Gonzalez?

No, they sat down the (near) rookie to bring in their season opener for the last two years. He's 4-0 right now.

Strasburg was not throwing well, looked tired, and needed the rest. When the season opened, nobody expected this, so it couldn't have been handled differently. Love all you that gots to have that try at the ring and are happy to risk somebody's career to get it.


Ok I stand corrected on the best pitcher thing (I obviously don't follow the Nats).

My point stands though. Ask any hall of fame pitcher that has not won a World Series, and they would tell you they would trade that great career for a World Series win.

20k per game isn't too bad for a team with 1 playoff apperance in 18 years playing the one of the worst baseball stadiums ever.

I'd never rip fans who don't show up for bad teams. Why waste your money if your ownership isn't trying to win?

It's different when you have a playoff team and you're only filling 60-70% of your stadium (Washington, Atl, TB)

Um, not throwing loose change and not cheering when the other team gets injured is pretty easy to beat, imo.

Eh. I'm a Phillies fan and I think its pretty funny.

And hey, about a third of Philly is really awesome! its just the rest absolutely sucks.

And the overly corrupt city government.
