What would your team give up for Jayson Werth? We may or may not trade him at the deadline for a pitcher or a 2nd baseman since utley is out for 8 weeks, possibly the entire season.

Now I really dont want to trade werth, but its know he will test the free agent market after this season.The Phillies also would ask for a top prospect as well. My question is, if we offer Werth and a lowball prospect as a throw in, what would you be willing to give up?

Why give anything up when we can have him as a FA next year?

That's what teams do when they want to contend this year.

I think you are seriously overvaluing Jayson Werth. I can't imagine that a team is going to give up a top prospect and a quality pitcher for 2 months of Jayson Werth.

Giants need a right fielder/ power bat but I don't know if Werth is the answer to it, especially for a top tier pitcher and prospect....

Not much. Werth is severely overrated. He is a nice player. That is all. He is the type of player that was so underrated for a few seasons, that he became overrated.

For the Red Sox. A (1) ML ready (Not Top) prospect (Josh Reddick, Michael Bowden, Felix Doubront) and maybe one mid level prospect.

If he had another year or two on his contract, I might add a little more, but I would not overpay for him. He has already struggled in his short AL career, and has a very limited track record of being a good player.


Product of the NL? Perhaps.

How was he underrated? His production was **** in LA and Toronto, and he just exploded when he came to Philadelphia. They just got lucky.

Anyway, everyone in the Dodger outfield > Werth

The sheer stupidity in this thread amazes me.

The guy is hitting .292/.378/.549 and is clearly the best outfielder behind Crawford in this year's FA class.

Correct. And then the Jayson Worth is underrated threads started popping up after he hit 24 HRs in 2008, than again last year... And then he instantly became a top OFer in baseball.

He was considered underrated and now has become overrated. That is what happens.

why? pagan and werth are close enough players this year to not make it any noticeable upgrade for the mets, yet alone worth any prospects. ( ignoring the whole same division thing)

:clap:

The guy is a 5 tool player... His defense is extremely underrated and he has a great arm in the out field. He has amazing strength and can hit for a pretty good avg while having a high on base pct and he also makes the pitcher work. The guy is still underrated. He will get a lot of money and one team will be extremely lucky to get him

Atlanta says no thank you, but I like the sarcasm :).

Jayson Werth is not going anywhere. Philadelphia is still in contention and they're not going to trade him away while in a pennant race to allow a rookie (Dominic Brown) to take over rightfield. Especially with both Utley and Polanco on the DL. Werth will ride out this season and most likely sign elsewhere next year, where his statistics will slowly start to decline.

He's a good ballplayer, but he's benefited from a ton of protection in that Philadelphia line-up. Werth is not the kind of a player that can carry a team, yet someone will sign him for more money than he's worth next season. Philadelphia will be fine, as they have Brown to replace him, just not this season.

The only thing that Philadelphia will add at this point (if anything) is a replacement secondbaseman for Utley and another starting pitcher.

Most players begin to decline offensively after their 30s. In terms of age, 32 is not old at all. In terms of baseball, he's getting old. Werth hit his peak late and he was fortunate enough to have the Phillies take a chance on him (the Dodgers and BlueJays never gave him a shot as a starter). He'll sign a huge contract next season and you'll see that he'll continue to decline offensively.

Werth is definitely more valuable then what people are saying. He was a first round pick by LA Dodgers. He just had bad luck with injuries early in his career. Jason Werth is definitely a upgrade over Jason Bay.

Wrong, he was a 1st round pick by the Baltimore Orioles (22nd overall) and he was chosen as a catcher (hence why he was taken in the 1st round because of their needs). Didn't pan out, was traded to Toronto, then to Los Angeles before signing with Philadelphia. The Phillies were the first one to give him a regular starting role (mainly because they had no one else for the position at the time) and he excelled. He's approaching the declining portion of his career and if he leaves Philadelphia (which he will), Werth will no longer be protected by Utley, Howard, etc.

He's good, but not worth multiple prospects or the money he'll be paid next season in free agency.

Then keep him for the last two months, cause no one is going to give up valuable prospects or a good player on there team to have him for two months.....Last time i checked he couldn't pitch
