Jayson Werth came to the Philadelphia Phillies four years ago as a former prospect gone bad.
He totally remade himself in Philly, and this was supposed to be his big year—his free agent year—when he would put it all together and get ready to become one of the highest paid players in baseball.
But 2010 has been a mixed bag for Werth, featuring run-ins with fans, a couple of slumps, and a horrendous batting average with runners in scoring position.
Now it is September and Werth is slumping again. As the rest of the lineup begins to heat up, Werth is hitting .245 for the month with 13 strikeouts and only one walk.
Meanwhile, numerous news reports have Werth firing his agent and looking to hire a new agent over—and this is ridiculous—commission rates.
Can Werth get back on track in order to get the Phils to the playoffs, help them succeed in the playoffs, and salvage what's left of what was going to be a handsome offseason payoff?
