And so, while the Cleveland Cavaliers and Brooklyn Nets have apparently courted Phil Jackson about a coaching gig recently, Jayson Werth just wants Jackson to pay a visit to the Washington Nationals clubhouse, burn some sage, and adjust the feng shui:
"Somebody was talking about Phil Jackson the other day. We need to call him up, have him come in & burn some sage or something." - J. Werth— Amanda Comak (@acomak) April 24, 2013
Jayson Werth joked team needed Phil Jackson to visit the clubhouse to burn some sage. "We're not very feng shui right now."— James Wagner (@JamesWagnerWP) April 24, 2013
Werth said a team member suggested calling Phil Jackson to come change the mojo. " We need to call him up and have him burn some sage."— Kevin Jones (@Mr_KevinJones) April 24, 2013
Werth joked #Nats should ask Phil Jackson to come to D.C. "Bring him in and burn some sage or something. We're not very feng shui."— Dan Kolko (@masnKolko) April 24, 2013
Werth was joking, of course, but given another bad loss today, fourth in a row, sixth in a row at home, and now sinking under .500 (10-11) for the first time since the last day of the 2011 season, it might be worth a shot to bring the Zen Master in to shake things up. Either that or install Henry Rodriguez at third and bat him cleanup. Or a rubber chicken sacrifice at Nationals Park on Thursday at high noon. Whatever works.
Go get 'em tomorrow. Gonna be alright.
