Dodgers: Dear Farhan Zaidi, Outfield Options For Your Consideration
By Josh Burke
Hey, Farhan dude. I’m Jayson Werth. You can sign me if you want or you can go down another path, man. I don’t get too stressed about it either way. I actually think I played for the Dodgers back in the day. It was before your time, brother. I was starting to find my groove, but a fastball inside got me pretty good on the wrist. There were broken bones and torn ligaments, it was a real mess, daddy-o. And there’s no guarantee that my bones won’t break again, the doctors say, so I do come with some risk.
If I were on your team, I’d bring a career slash line of .293/.393/.538 against left-handed pitchers. I’m playoff tested with 271 career plate appearances in the postseason, too, so your young players can come to me for sage-like advice. However, if I weren’t on your team, you’d notice because there would be someone else on your team who wasn’t me.
