Jayson Werth joined Mark for a one-on-one interview at last weekend’s Nats Fest, and as usual provided a great perspective on the state of the team. He thinks the Nationals underachieved last season, but could be better off now because of their struggles.

“We grew a lot as a team, we learned a lot as a team. Our younger players gained experience,” he said. “I just think we learned a lot last year and that’s going to help us moving forward.”

Werth also talked about the continued growth of the Nationals’ fanbase and what he expects from Matt Williams in his first year as manager.

    Good interview Mark, in spite of how ballplayers speak in vague generalities.

    JDub is all baseball, and has no problem being a leader. Probably a future manager.
