It was widely reported nowhere necessarily real last week that Jayson Werth reportedly received a contract offer from the Phils. I was eating lots of pumpkin pie, and things are crazy on the Auburn Board of Trustees these days, but I can finally share what my sources (aka WertzyLeaks and "Bill" from Mt. Airy...note: not their real names) have indicated to me.
SHARED- Wertz actually did receive three offers from the organization. Two were largely similar in terms of length, and the other more open-ended in nature and driven by Wertz's team. The details:
Offer One: Three years, $57M, unlimited Chipotle, two ZWR shirts, and he gets to coach first base during road games.
Offer Two: Four years, $75M, ownership of www.thefightins.com domain, unlimited annoying Groupon e-mails, and he gets to change his uniform number to "Four Loko".

Offer Three: $16,666,666 for one minute, with an attached agreement to serve in the capacity of "awesome baseball stud" for the 2011 season gratis. Wertz pushed this, as it will allow him to tell people that his wage is one billion dollars an hour.
