On your left is a fresh faced Jayson Werth back when he was first drafted by the Baltimore Orioles and on your right is Werth this morning in Clearwater fresh off a two month vacation on a deserted island.
Todd Zolecki finally got Mr. Werth to answer a few questions about the growth in his game.
Q: You want to steal more bases. Speed is a big part of your game. Do you worry the hair peace is going to slow you down?
A: I'm not wearing a hair piece.
Q: No, the beard.
A: No, I'm not worried about it.
Q: Will you taper down for the season?
A: I'm not sure.
Q: It's attractive.
A: Thank you.
The jury is still out on that last statement. Some ladies are smitten with J-Werth's new look while others wonder why such an attractive young fellow would go out and do something like that?
Obviously, the entire male population of Philadelphia agrees the beard will increase Werth's Raw Power to previously unseen levels.
