It's early on so whoever dropped him obviously has no patience. Yes his performance last year was underwhelming especially after the Nats signed that contract. I would definitely pick him up. I have him on one of my teams, and while he hasn't done anything yet, I feel he'll be more comfortable this year than last. Who did the guy drop him for?
From what I know, Werth is pretty much a top 100 player coming into the season, so yeah, he sure was hasty in dropping him. Actually picked up Kyle Lohse in his place believe it or not. I have the #1 waiver priority and think I'm gonna use it. What kind of pitcher could he net in a trade? I'd be willing to package him with Anibal Sanchez and Shaun Marcum for an ace.
