  • Jayson Werth looks on from the on-deck circle

Werth appeared on Philly-area radio man Howard Eskin's podcast Tuesday (those interested should definitely listen to the whole thing if so inclined), and the part about Werth's offseason and spring leading to the Mariners was pretty amusing.

". I think it's killing the game". "I wanted to play, I let my agent know that I wanted to play". We don't even need to go out there anymore.

A native of Springfield, IL, Werth spent 15 years in the big leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays, Los Angeles Dodgers, Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals. He was a part of nine playoff teams, winning two pennants and the 2008 World Series as part of the Phillies.

Werth, 39, was playing with Triple-A Tacoma - batting.206 with four homers and 19 RBIs for the Seattle Mariners' affiliate - when he said he had "no regrets" to stop playing. He has yet to officially retire.

"When they come down, these kids from MIT, Stanford, Harvard, wherever they're from, they've never played baseball in their life", Werth told Eskin. "When they come down to talk about stuff like [defensive shifts]. should I just bunt it over there? We want you to hit a homer.' It's just not baseball to me". "It's boring. You're turning players into robots".
