    Ummmmm out of those Philly by far, they hav three legit aces where as Atlanta has all 2 and 3's.

    If ur saying which of those is the best rotation in the game neither. Boston by far not being a homer.

    Lester (all star)
    Beckett (ace)
    Lackey (ace)
    Matsuzaka (paid lik an ace)
    Buchholz (all star and arguably ace of the staff with Lester this year)

    Hudson is a 2 or 3? Go look at his numbers.
    Yet, Lackey and Bucholtz are aces? And you count Dice K by "Saying paid like a all star" lol nice logic. Go away Sox homer, your team is about to fall to 4th.

    LOL at Beckett and Lackey being aces. Maybe at the beginning of the year it was the Red Sox but with Lackey and Beckett pitching they way the have this year there is no way they are the best. Also Tim Hudson is an ace more of an ace than Hamels or Oswalt. And he wasn't even talking about best rotation he was just comparing the two rotations.

    Props to Fly-Eagles-Fly for the Sig

    Like RSF2434 said, he was not trying to make a case for the best rotation. He answered the question, saying that if it's only those two, it's Philly by a lot.

    I agree with him that the Sox rotation matches up with Philly.

    Lester and Buchholz have been dominant except for a few starts here and there
    Beckett's been out most of the year, so it's hard to judge him, but since he's come back, he's pitched well--his big test is tonight.
    Lackey is on and off all year, still adjusting to Boston and Fenway IMO.
    Dice-K? psh. Don't get me started on him.

    Point is, on paper the Sox probably have the best rotation; in terms of production, ehhh gotta give the edge to the Phillies right now--the Sox only have 2 starters consistently producing through the whole season.
    Another AMAZING sig by ELEMENTS!!



    Little kids growing up, if they were ever in their wildest dreams mentioned in the same sentence with Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, John Lackey that would probably make their world ... Thatís where Iím at right now.

    Yea the Phillies have a better three man rotation which will be huge in the playoffs but the Braves have a solid 1-5 but can only use three in the playoffs.

    Hmm, this sounds like a COMPARISON. If we only had a forum for that.

    Like I said, you can't judge this because he's been hurt most of the year.

    Yeah, he was generally ineffective before his injury. I see the stats, I know. He's been doin good in his last start or two since coming back, and since his injury happened against the Yanks, it'll be a good test to see if he shuts them down on National TV. IMO, an ace is someone who steps up big when it matters--in 2004, Schilling was the ace. Pitched on one leg to win game 6. In 2007, Beckett was our ace. He put the team on his back every time he went out there. That, to me, spells ace material. Can he do it again? Probably not; but he was an ace up until 2007, so if you're going to knock him off, at least get the year right.

    2.23 ERA? Sounds like an ace to me.......Out of Philly vs Atlanta, Kendrick and Blanton automatically make Philly losers.The Braves are better across the boards. They have 4 solid starters(Hudson,Lowe,Jurrjens,and Hanson) and Philly has 3 solid starters(Halladay-duh,Oswalt,and Hamels)
