Jayson Werth Sets Twitter on Fire

Todd Zolecki provides the goods:

No, that’s not Jesus; that’s Phillies right fielder Jayson Werth sporting a beard that can only be described as glorious. He claims to have grown it naturally, but sources at WPTcasino.com say it was the jackpot prize that was awarded last week. You decide.

The Twitterverse reaction:


  • Please inform him that we are all counting on him to maintain that beard for opening day.
  • Obviously Werth knew the team’s facial hair quota was in jeopardy after Bruntlett left and stepped it up.

@BigLeagueStew: “I didn’t kill my wife.”

@PhilliesNation: Eric Bruntlett is back?

@Tommy_Bennett: If you asked me yesterday, I would’ve said it was impossible for me to appreciate Jayson Werth more. And of course I would’ve been wrong.

@Petzrawr: Starting in left, number 66, Charles Manson!

@DJShort: Looks like Goat Boy.

@Beerleaguer: Werth spent winter lost in the Alaskan wilderness.

@Jay_Jaffe: Piling on Chan Ho Park, or auditioning to play bass?

@OfficialReview: The Phillies signed the guy on the BRAWNY paper towels label? Oh wait, that’s Jayson Werth.

@Meechone: Move over guy in Oakland who knocked out the dude on the bus, there’s a new Epic Beard Man and his name is Jayson Werth.

    This clearly calls for a new stat: “BAR,” or “Beards Above Replacement.”
