It was roughly one year ago when Baseball America deemed the Nationals' farm system as the sport's preeminent assemblage of talent.
The Nats and Braves have made only a couple of roster tweaks, while the Phillies, Mets and Marlins have made several bold moves. Where does that leave the division midway through the offseason?
According to the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles have in fact a renewed interest in the first baseman that writer Dan Connolly calls “legitimate.”
Drew Storen was at the center of the Nationals' crushing playoff loss to the Cardinals. His ability to put that blown save behind him will be a key to the Nats' chances in 2013.
