Illustration for article titled Jayson Werths Glove Is Just For Show

Did you know baseball players didn't regularly wear gloves until the 1890s? Jayson Werth is an absolute throwback, barehanding a pop fly in yesterday's game just because. Or at least because he lost it in the sun.


The grab didn't help. After a loss, Washington is now only 4.5 games up in the NL East, Davey Johnson is yelling at Mike Rizzo, and tens of thousands of fans are apparently forever stranded by the Metro in the Navy Yard, setting up their own rudimentary society. Just one four-game losing streak and already everything's melting down? The Nats are a big boy franchise now!
