Jayson Werth successfully navigates bases without incident
Updated: August 7, 2010

By , PhillyGameday.com

Phillies outfielder Jayson Werth reached a new career milestone during Friday’s game against the Mets when he made his way around the bases for the first time ever without getting picked off, falling down, going to sleep, forgetting to breathe or wandering off to go find a bar.

“When he’s on base, Jayson seems interested in doing everything except staying on base,” said manager Charlie Manuel. “So to make it home the way he did is pretty much the equivalent of you or I curing cancer. It’s really nothing short of a miracle that he didn’t kill himself out there.”

With this milestone out of the way, Werth will now look toward driving in a run with two outs and runners in scoring position for the first time since high school gym class.

    I assume this is a joke since Charlie could never string together that many words in one sentence, and because you didn’t write the same thing about Ibanez, Domonic Brown, Rollins, or Victorino, all of whom have gotten picked off while running for base this season. And let’s not forget Utley because his tragedy was the best of all: not only was his attempted stolen base not stolen, but it was unnecesarily not stolen, and he ended up needing thumb surgery that put him on the DL for more than a month. But of course you’d rather wack away at Werth because you’re one of the many numb-nuts trying to make himself feel better when the front office refuses to re-sign the one FA player in MLB that every other team legitimately wants. Says a lot about you Zaki.

    Thanks for the comment, but loosen the anus a little.

    Werth made his 200th baserunning error in the past week, so I wrote a piece about it. Lighten up.

    “I assume this is a joke…” -it figures

    If you look at the bottom of the page, or read any other atricle here, it’s more than safe to assume it’s a joke. Not sure if I’d put money on it, but almost seems like a lock.
