Jayson Werth



    Not every athlete has a Twitter account dedicated to his facial hair.

    But Jayson Werth does. And we like it. We're assuming he does, too.

    Werth was paid a lot of money to join a bad Washington Nationals franchise instead of a contender. The reason he accepted that challenge -- the hope that the Nats' young studs soon will be contending for division titles instead of more No. 1 picks.

    So Werth got in on the ground floor, put up with a year of losing and now hopes his veteran leadership will translate into a winning record -- and possibly more.

    At the very least, his prowess of growing facial hair will keep Nats fans entertained for seasons to come.
