Don’t get me wrong, the Washington Nationals bullpen is still its weakest area, but they are starting to look formidable in the World Series.
Coming into the World Series the Nationals bullpen had an ERA of 4.76, which ranked as one of the worst among postseason teams.
But when you compare that to their league-leading worst 5.66 bullpen ERA from the regular season, they’ve actually been decent.
Of course, some of that has to do with the fact that Dave Martinez has used some of his starters out of the bullpen.
Here are the bullpen numbers for Nationals starters:
Max Scherzer – 1 IP, 0 H, 0 BB, 0 ER, 3 K
Patrick Corbin – 3.
