    He could end up with 35 HRs and maybe 95 RBIs. 100 RBIs is possible, but he’d have to average about 1 every 2 games to do that. He’s kind of the unsung hero of the Phillies’ line-up.

    The number one fan of Werth, Don M says~” he’s having a MONSTER YEAR !!!…” (chuckles)

    Relative to his past seasons? A possible “career” year for him sounds more accurate. 😉

    It wasnt but a month ago that alot of people were saying to get rid of him. LOL. He is streaky, but when he hits, he is ON FIRE! I agree, he is having a career.
