In the digital age, rumors fly much quicker than they used to. It literally takes only seconds to post a rumor online and create a huge buzz over basically nothing.
The same applies to Phillies free-agent right fielder Jayson Werth. Early this morning, a talk-show radio host mentioned that the Phillies had offered Werth a contract and that it was good enough for him to possibly sign.
Should you give credence to this rumor? The simple answer is "No."
Black Friday came and went and no "sale" on outfielders was ever advertised. Tomorrow is Cyber Monday. For those awaiting a holiday miracle and second-chance sale on Werth, put it out of your mind.
