The Nationals’ bullpen was a bit of a liability last season, just one year after being a major strength for the club. They had issues with righty/lefty balance and an overall lack of depth.

This year the Nats hope they’ve fixed those problems, bringing in Jerry Blevins to a unit that will also have one more year of experience. In this video Mark talks with Blevins, Tyler Clippard, Drew Storen and pitching coach Steve McCatty about their expectations for 2014.

Check it out right here:

    Clip pretty much summed it up!

    The market is officially set for Jordan. 6 years/105 for Bailey, with a mutual option. Zimmermann will command more.
