Jayson Werth: Teddy’s streak “Needs to be addressed”

Today over at espn.com, today’s flattering profile of the 2012 Nationals includes some choice words by Jayson Werth about the presidents race, and specifically the Let Teddy Win movement.

Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth shows his disgust after another Teddy Roosevelt loss in 2011

Werth had been an outspoken member since arriving in DC last year, and twice attempted to interfere on Teddy’s behalf. Despite his failure, he clearly hasn’t given up the hunt, telling ESPN “I may be the last member of the Rough Riders.” 

“Teddy’s gonna have to win a race,” Werth said. “It just goes along with the whole expectancy of losing that was here when I got here. ‘The Nationals lost again?’ OK. ‘Teddy lost again?’ No big deal. It’s a parallel. People can laugh and say I’m out of my mind or whatever. Maybe I am. Who knows? …To me, the Presidents Race and Teddy Roosevelt are very symbolic of where this organization goes. It needs to be addressed. It needs to be answered.”
