    Considering the Yankees, Rangers, Angels, and others have two months to alter their rotation and haven't made a move yet this is probably too soon.

    I'll say SF/Det/Nats and Toronto plus it's Morrow not Marrow. I would say the Dodgers easily have the best 1-2 punch but overall maybe top 5 between them and TB

    Literally, the first sentence of that post says 'since there is nothing else to really talk about '



    Obviously this is too soon to really nail it down. Paul Maholm, Edwin Jackson, Kyle Lohse still have to sign, and that will change the rankings when that time comes.

    For the Braves: Beachy likely won't be back until the all star break, Maholm is gonna be our #4 starter, and either Medlen or Hudson will get the baseball on Opening Day. Hanson was dragging down the rotation but he's gone now, and as of today I'd give Teheran the edge for the #5 starter. I believe the key to challenging for a Top 5 rotation again is Mike Minor -- I think we'll know fairly early if he's gonna be the guy who gave up all those homeruns in the first half of 2012 or the one who looked like our second best starter in the second half.

    Feldman also isn't a Ranger.

    I'm sticking with the Tigers, then the Phillies, then the Nationals...Bounce back year for the Phillies rotation, and Hamels continues The Quest to be viewed as a legit ace by the masses with another badass season.

    If Romero is better at all this year, I'd flip those two bolded teams.

    Tigers:
    1. Verlander
    2. Fister
    3. Sanchez
    4. Scherzer
    5. Porcello/Smyly

    Blue Jays:
    1. Dickey
    2. Buehrle
    3. Morrow
    4. Johnson
    5. Romero

    I'm sure neither team is that upset about their stellar rotations haha

    Yeah, I forgot to remove him from them. Did put him on the Cubs though.
