Jayson Werth Has "Galactic" Views On Hitting

With the recent discovery of the earliest signals from the Big Bang, it's appropriate to cogitate on the cosmic implications of hitting a baseball. Enter Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth. In a wide-ranging interview with The Washington Post, Werth offered up his thoughts on the difficulty of hitting. Said Werth, "There’s nothing harder. I can bake a cake. I could figure out a way to do algorithms. But a guy that knows how to do algorithms could never hit. It’s literally the hardest thing to do. If you can do the hardest thing, you can do anything else. There’s nothing harder in the galaxy." OK, that's pretty deep for a baseball player. But Werth has pretty good credentials—he's hit over .300 the last two seasons. What do we know? We can't hit or do Al Gore Rhythms.
