The Nationals said in a press release issued on Friday that they “were not happy with the final product” and will re-issue a Jayson Werth bobblehead during the off-season. The first 25,000 fans to enter Nationals Park on August 30 will be given a voucher for the new bobblehead plus another gift.
Alex Parker of ABC7 has a picture of the first edition:
The bobblehead celebrates Jayson Werth’s walk-off home run in Game 4 of the 2012 NLDS against the Cardinals. Here’s video if you want to relive the moment.
The Mets announced a few minutes ago that they have traded Wilmer Font to Toronto for cash considerations.
Font was acquired by the Mets from Tampa Bay for a player to be named later back in early May. That player to be named later was later named: Neraldo Catalina. Catalina is 19 and is playing rookie ball right now. The Mets have now turned him into cash. I suppose we’ll see if that was a good idea in a few years.
As for the Jays, they get a pitcher who posted a 5.79 ERA in 10 relief appearances for the Rays and then started three games and relieved 12 in New York to the tune of a 4.94 ERA. On the season he has a combined K/BB ratio of 42/18 in 45 innings.
He’s an arm. He cost cash. That’s about all I have to say about that.
