But after a surprising trade to the Mets, Blevins was back in Viera in a Mets uniform and on the mound against his former teammate.

Pitching is enjoying a renaissance, much to the dismay of hitters, and given the investment the Nationals have made in this year’s sterling rotation, it’s worth assessing each of the 30 starting staffs in baseball because, more than any other area, they’ll impact each organization’s chance to be successful over 162 games.
