Is there any way the Phillies can resign him and keep him here for future World Series runs?
It’s going to be tough with the money they’re already paying out to Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, Roy Halladay and Jimmy Rollins.
Phillies GM Ruben Amaro has made it clear that they can’t sign everybody.¬† Amaro says the Phillies aren’t the Yankees, but how can they let a guy go who is the righthanded bat behind Howard who forces pitchers to pitch to Howard.
Werth seems to be getting better and he’s an all around player who hits for a decent average, hits with power, runs the bases well, does a great job of running balls down in the outfield, and has a great arm.
You know teams are going to be all over him if he makes it to free agency without the Phils signing him.
He was an All-Star last year and right now it looks like he will be one again this season.¬† Werth is currently batting .349 with seven homers plus he’s leading the team with 26 RBI’s.
Would it make sense for the Phils to get rid of both Raul Ibanez and Shane Victorino and in order to hang onto Werth?
Can we depend on the Phils farm system to supply youngters who can come up and get the job done?
Do you have any other ideas of how the Phils could hang onto Werth?
