Nickname The Phillie: Jayson Werth

The Phillies have some fantastic nicknames. There’s The Bat (Pat Burrell), Hollywood (Cole Hamels), Lights Out (Brad Lidge), Chooch (Carlos Ruiz) and of course, the Flyin’ Hawaiian (Shane Victorino). But not everyone has a nickname, and we need to help.

An off-hand conversation about Chad Durbin brought upon the nickname “Dim the Lights,” which I think is a worthy moniker for the man. That’s why I think we here at the Nation need to do more of the same. This week I’m opening a feature called “Nickname the Phillie,” where you guys can determine the nickname of select Phils.

First I’m offering Jayson Werth. His two-run home run with two strikes and two outs in the ninth was one of his biggest Phillie highlights. His three-homer game earlier this season was another. A guy with his substantial power, speed, defensive abilities and patience at the plate deserves a great nickname. Go at it — nickname the Phillie.

    “Werther’s original” or “Werth it” gets my vote – wasn’t Jay Bird Jay Johnstone’s nickname (70′s phillies)….
