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.”
