(He's no Santa Claus. Philadelphia fans gave Jayson Werth a standing ovation. Screen grab of TV/MASN.)
Wow. Didn't see that coming. Jayson Werth got a standing ovation from Phillies fans before his first at-bat Tuesday night? Of course, there were plenty of boos at first, but they got drowned out by the cheers. Lots of 'em. Then another standing ovation as Werth jogged out to his old stomping ground in RF at Citizen's Bank Park in the bottom of the first?
What's next, cats and dogs living in peace? A snowball fight breaking out in hell?
(And you gotta love the signs directly behind Werth in the screen grab above: "$TIFF"; "WELCOME BACK LOSER"; "HIPPIE SELLOUT". That's more like it, Philly!)
