07:16 AM ET 10.03 | The Orioles bullpen didn't always offer much relief in 2013, but the franchise appears interested in bringing back Jim Johnson. He'll probably earn around $8 million, and presumably anchor the bullpen next season. 2013's bullpen didn't perform as well as the year before. ... 2013's bullpen did feature full seasons of Tommy Hunter and Brian Matusz, two players who'd rather start than relieve. ... After the historically bad 2011 season (1-9, 10.69 ERA), his future was in doubt, and after a disappointing first half in 2012, Matusz found himself in the minors. When Patton was hurt, the Orioles had no suitable left-handed alternatives, and they converted him to a reliever. He made $1.6 million in 2013, and he's also due for a sizable bump. The Orioles may be forced to trade him.

Sorry, the whole time I was reading this I couldn't stop thinking of Len Matuszak's radiant smile.

An Orioles post in the off-season. All is right with the world.
