Last of the 2014 preseason previews is the Phillies bullpen. Look for it to include 6th starter types like Jonathan Pettibone, Jeff Manship, Ethan Martin, and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez. As well as, Jonathan Papelbon, Antonio Bastardo, Jake Diekman, BJ Rosenberg, Shawn Camp, Brad Lincoln, Mike Adams, Justin DeFratus, among others.
Pros: High K's per 9, young with upside, not much else.
Cons: Too many unknowns, includes one prick (Papelbon), one PED abuser (Bastardo), and one highly priced brittle setup man (Adams).
