Jayson Werth offered up a headline-worthy quote after last night’s loss to the Phillies. Here is it in full, via James Wagner.

“I don’t know,” he said, leaning back in the rolling chair at his locker. “I guess we’re kind of all screwed up like that. Stuff doesn’t bother us. When you get to this level, play for this long, you’ve learned to get over stuff like that pretty quick. It’s just part of it. People that drown in it and people that take it home and allow it to eat at them and all that don’t usually last too long. They don’t stick around. That’s all part of being a big leaguer. You’ve just got to do it. You’ve got to show up tomorrow ready to eat somebody’s face.”

Eat somebody’s face.

At least two of Werth’s teammates found it amusing, responding with tweets about eating faces.
