Jayson Werth: I’m motivated by Phillies fans

In an e-mail to the Post, Werth said Phillies fans in right field at Nationals Park taunted him as he walked off the field Sunday night. And he will remember them during his rehab.

“After walking off the field feeling nauseous knowing my wrist was broke and hearing Philly fans yelling ‘You deserve it,’ and, ‘That’s what you get,’ I am motivated to get back quickly and see to it personally those people never walk down Broad Street in celebration again,” Werth wrote.

After Cole Hamels admitted he threw at Bryce Harper and Mike Rizzo ripped him for it, the Nationals-Phillies rivalry has taken another leap forward.
