Werth claims Phillies' fans taunted him after breaking his wrist

PBR - The magnitude of Sunday's contest in Washington continues to grow.

Nationals' outfielder Jayson Werth suffered a broken left wrist while sliding for a fly ball in a 9-3 loss to the Phillies. He had surgery on Monday and is expected to miss 12 weeks.

Today, in an e-mail to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, Werth drops a bomb claiming fans in right field at Nationals Park taunted him as he cautiously walked off the field.

“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.

This, of course, on the heels of Cole Hamels openly admitting he threw at Bryce Harper.
