Jayson Werth's Golden Sombrero

A golden sombrero is awarded to a player who manages to strike out four times in a single game (real golden sombrero not included). It's quite the feat unless you're Ryan Howard or Mark Reynolds. Unfortunately, cycles and no-hitters are all the rage nowadays. Not for me, though. I will pour over the box scores to bring you the finest at swinging and missing.

Google Chrome auto-filled Jayson Werth's Golden Sombrero for me but I can't find any record of me writing one for him. He had a GS on May 30th but I didn't write it up or Blogger ate my post. Which, I can only assume, was hilarious and groundbreaking. Werth batted clean up for the Phils tonight and did his disabled teammate Ryan Howard proud by going 0-5 with 4 strikeouts.

Usually this is the point where I post a pinata-gone-wrong video or talk about drinking cheap tequila with a donkey. I'm trying something new tonight and I'm writing this post sober and jackass free. I'm just kidding, I've been drinking all day and eating cans with this goat in a hat.

Let's check out Jayson Werth's day at the dish...

Top 1st: Werth struck out swinging against Sean West. Sean West is a former 1st round pick out of Shreveport and is 6'8, 260 pounds. I'm not sure if he's a legit prospect or a failed potential linebacker for LSU.

Top 5th: Werth struck out swinging against West. Legit prospect?

Top 7th: Werth struck out looking against Burke Badenhop.

Top 8th: Werth struck out swinging against Brian Sanches. Shouldn't I have heard of any of these pitchers?
