This is actually the quote of yesterday, but here’s Jayson Werth, talking about his contributions to the Nationals. Some of which he believes to be over and above the .223/.326/.390 line he has put up thus far:

I’d like to think that, me just being here, you know, is enough. I don’t even have to take a bat out there.

I used to feel that way about me at the law firm. And then when it came time for the partnership vote I learned that -- surprise surprise -- performance mattered a bit more than I would have liked.

A shame, really.
