Best Rotation Ever: Following up on the Tuesday discussion about the “best rotation ever” … here are two thoughts from Sports Illustrated baseball writers. 1) Tom Verducci: The 2011 Phillies should be the best 4-man rotation since the 1966 Dodgers. 2) Joe Posnanski & Bill James put the 2011 Phillies 4-man rotation on par with the ’71 Orioles, ’66 Dodgers, and ’55 Indians. Where is the legendary Atlanta Braves’ rotation from the 90s, you ask? They had three horses – Glavine, Smoltz, Maddux – and if you want to change the discussion to “best 3-man rotation ever” then they’re your pick. But the dropoff to Denny Neagle or Steve Avery was too precipitous for their 4-man rotation to be in the discussion with the 2011 Phillies.
