I really like that Braves rotation trev just posted - that looks damn good.
Im pretty sure noone will argue that the Cubs top 3 instantly make them the best rotation in MLB.
Therefore I rank the top 3 staffs like this:
If NY gets RJ, they will compete with the Cubs for the best in baseball.
i really don't see how the yankees without RJ and with 2 unproven guys like wright and pavano (exactly the kind of players who play great until they pitch in NY and get booed and harassed by the press) are the 3rd best rotation in baseball. Lets not forget that the yankees did not have a 15 game winner last year...
also, i really like the cubs rotation, but saying without a doubt it is the best rotation in MLB is kinda silly. rember they are a NATIONAL LEAGUE team therefore thier pitchers will put up better numbers than AL staffs. MAdduax did have his worst season since Reagon was president last year. Finally, Lets see how well Prior and Wood rebound from thier injuries as well. I really like Zambrano. Rusch had a nice year, but i still am not comfortable with him.
Ok, so then how do you rank them? All you've done is say two staffs aren't that good, but haven't suggested any staff to be better.
