Yankees Rotation - Potentially best in baseball?

Post by WOODMO » March 27th, 2014, 8:02 pm

I swear, no homer, but this has been on my mind the past few days.

Sabathia
Kuroda
Nova
Tanaka
Pineda

What team has a better 4 and 5 POTENTIAL wise? Seriously, Pineda if even close to how he was first half of 2011 would be a #2 on most teams. Tanaka looks great. CC seems to have new life with his reduced speed, I expect bounce back. Kuroda is always solid.

Can this potentially be the best staff in baseball? If the answer is no, who is?

cant say best after cc and kuroda collaped in the 2nd half last year. cC cant get past 93 so far so he will have to lose his stubborness and make sure his change and slider are working

Tanaka and Pineda could be huge. CC/Kuroda, eh. Hope they don't have a lot of infield grounders, cause the fossils they have 1st to 3rd won't get them.

Lots of potential to be amazing but just as much potential to be dismal

I like the Tigers rotation of Verlander, Sanchez, Scherzer, Smyly, and Porcello. If they had not traded Fister to the Nationals, I would have said the Tigers rotation for sure.

I agree with Cos about the Tigers. The Cards also have a really good rotation. Wainwright, Wacha, Lynn, Miller and maybe Garcia if hes healthy. Real solid

Potentially yes, but everything must fall in place for them with minimal injuries, etc.

There are probably 5-8 teams that can claim best rotation potential. Who stays healthy, etc., is anyone's guess.

I would say in the AL Tigers, Red Sox (hate them) and Rays in the NL Nationals, Cards, Dodgers, Giants and yes you heard it here first the 2nd NL Wild card team the Brewers all could possibly match the Yankees rotation
