Jason "Beachball" Bergmann can be considered a re-re-re-tread. We already know what we are going to get from him. Clippard, might have some hope, but I wouldn't count on it.
Fact of the matter is, the Nationals have absolutely no one in their system that is going to stop the bleeding.
See I hear that... but yet until Clippard gets a legit shot, no one knows for sure what he brings. And in a 10-21 season... what do we have to lose in giving him an extended look?
