Nats GM Rizzo Takes Outrageous-Contract Heat Off Colletti

Before he was bearded...and loaded (hirsute and with loot?).

Ned Colletti gave Juan Uribe $21 million for three years, and people complained. Then he gave Rod Barajas $3.25 million, and people complained.

Fret not, Flanders. Nationals GM Mike Rizzo just overshadowed you big time, giving 31-year-old former Dodger Jayson Werth $126 million for seven years. Whoa. That's Zito money!

It feels like Werth just got paid to disappear off the face of the earth. Enjoy D.C., Paul Bunyan!

Glasses make the man.

But $126 million doesn't hurt either.

That old picture of Jayson Werth is quite a spectacle.
