What do O's, Phillies and Dodgers have in common?

What do O's, Phillies and Dodgers have in common?

I'm pretty sure a lot of O's fans know the answer to this fairly easy trivia question. Phillies outfielder Jayson Werth (left) was a first-round pick (22nd overall) by the Orioles in the 1997 draft and was eventually traded to the Toronto Blue Jays for pitcher John Bale without having made a major league appearance in an O's uniform.

He was traded to the Dodgers for Jason Frasor in 2004 and signed with the Phillies as a free agent two years ago. It's been a long and difficult road to his place now as an everyday player on an NLCS team, and he came full-circle when the same GM (Pat Gillick) who drafted him into the Orioles organization signed him in Philadelphia.
