Also scroll down to about the last third of the article. The WhiteSox are the only team with two guys on their Squad to have a pitcher that kept both lefties and righties below the .200 BA level. There were only 8 pitchers who did that last year. Gagne came in first, but there's a surprise in second!

I still think that team could beat the Sox.

Top 10 pitching staffs (overall):

Red Sox
Yankees
Cubs (with Maddux)
A's
Mariners
Astros
Angels
Dodgers
Phillies
Marlins/Giants?

I did this off the top of my head so if I missed one or made a blatant error, don't crawl all over me please. :smile:

What? How can anyone overlook the Sox? They have the legendary Danny Wright, after all!

The All-AL Central rotation might make the Top 10.

Radke? Rodriguez isn't a bad choice based on his potential.

DoWow what a great debate. Let's see, if I could have my choice of any staff for the Sox, top 5 would be:

1) Astros--for this year they look to be tops. Miller and Oswalt are arguably #1 for 15-20 teams, and they are 3/4 on this staff.

2)BoSox--Pedro/Schill/Lowe nice 1-2-3 punch, BK Kim could be a nice #4

:pee :scrubs 3a)--we don't need to discuss this one. Too painful. :angry: Probably best long-term. :whiner:
If they get Maddux, maybe #1, probably at least #2.

3b)A's--Zito/Mulder/Hudson/Harden/Redman--not too shabby

5) Yanks--Brown/Moose/Vazquez/Contreras/Lieber

I would then probably put Seattle #6, Philly #7, Marlins #8, Anaheim #9, Dodgers #10. Sleeper staffs are Pittsburgh and San Diego. I am just evaluating starting rotations as they stand today. Just my opinion.
