Re: Jayson Werth signs with the Nats??
Agree to disagree. Werth has tied together a few (3) good seasons, but there is no guarantee that power is gonna stick around. He struggles to hit .270 (he hit .296 in 2010, but is a .272 career hitter) and is even worse in clutch situations (.196 avg with RISP in 2010). Crawford is an excellent defender and playing in the easiest left field in baseball. Crawford hits for AVG (.296 career) and is a speedster. Plus he is also 29 (Werth is 31). There is no doubt in my mind the Yankees would've paid even more for Crawford had they been able to wait and see if the Lee deal fell through.
