Jayson Werth Has Some Good Ideas

Per Jayson Stark, ESPN:

“I don’t know what those guys get if they win [the Home Run Derby],” Werth told Rumblings. “But I think they should get a bag of cash.”

Wait. A bag of cash? Like what, a shopping bag? Full of $20 bills?

“No, of hundreds,” Werth said. “I’m talking about a sack full. Maybe a little leprechaun could carry it out there and throw it at your feet if you win. Then you’d hop in the back of a big Brinks truck and ride away. That would be awesome.”

Check out The Phightins to see what it would have looked like if Werth’s idea had been implemented when Ryan Howard won the Derby in 2006.

    I think they would give out money to the winner if they didn’t have a car sponser. It actually makes the MLB money.

    Funny pic though. Baseball players are such regular joes when you are not screaming at them.
