This offseason, the Colorado Rockies have taken their biggest area of need, the bullpen, and transformed it into one of the most impressive collections of relievers they have ever put together.

Now with Wade Davis in the mix, the Rockies have solidified the most talented and experienced bullpen they've ever walked into a season with and arguably one of the most talented groups in all of MLB.

With Davis, Jake McGee, and Bryan Shaw the Rockies have re-created the murderer's row of late-game pitchers with which they finished the 2017 season. Shaw essentially steps into the Pat Neshek role, the big difference being that Colorado will have him for the entire season.

At the press conference where the Rockies introduced Shaw and reintroduced McGee, the latter told BSN Denver in an exclusive interview that he believed the club was "one established closer away" from being arguably the scariest group in the game.

We also asked GM Jeff Bridich about his focus on the bullpen.
