"I don't know, you live and learn but, with Harp up behind me in a two run game, I was being aggressive, I was convicted. I felt like I could make a difference right there and...I got caught up in it, that's for sure. ... I feel like it was my fault. Tough loss."
(Jayson Werth, via MASNSports.com, 4/21/2013)
"Looking back, I was trying to do too much. I was trying to win the game right there. That’s it, really. We can sit here and talk about the situation. I was just trying to do too much. The situation got the best of me. That’s probably one of the dumber things I’ve done on the field in a while. Look no further than right here. We had a chance to win the game. I feel like I pretty much blew it."

Mets 2, Nationals 0: Jayson Werth inexplicably decides to swing on a 3-0 count with two on and no out in the 8th, grounds into double play. Much respect to Werth for facing the music after the game and shouldering the blame for this one, but...
Ho hum, another game, another 3 errors for the Nats.
Welcome to The Show, Anthony Rendon. Nice catch (video)!
Back home tomorrow for the return of Bleeping Pete Kozma and the Cardinals.
