07:15 PM ET 06.19 | It's still weird to see Jayson Werth come to the plate at Citizens Bank Park wearing a baggy Nationals jersey, rather than wearing the red pinstripes. It???s still weird to not hear Lil' Wayne's "Right Above It", playing every time Werth comes to the plate. Many people in the Delaware Valley will always view Jayson Werth as a Phillies player, and in an interview with MLB.com's Todd Zolecki, Werth acknowledged that Philly still feels like home to him. After vowing in 2011 that he would make sure Phillies fans didn't get to have another parade down Broad Street, Werth sounds like he has come to the conclusion that he isn't going to be treated well in Philly for the rest of his career, but he still hopes that someday the glory days are what stands out in the mind of Phillies fans.

QUOTE(#1):

To be sure, many Nationals fans wish Jayson Werth was still a Phillie...

and they probably wish Mike Morse was still on the roster too.

He was eager to make the big bucks, that's what was important to him. He made his choice.
