As the old saying goes, pitching wins championships. Well with the San Francisco Giants winning two out of the last three World Series on the strength of their arms, we can safely assume the old saying is alive and well. Big sluggers put butts in seats but stellar mound’s men really do lead to victory parades, and celebrations all winter. There are a lot of amazing rotations in baseball, it’s no secret pitching has completely dominated in the post steroid area, but the question remains who has the best?

The three biggest things I considered when deciding on my list is how deep a rotation is from the ace to the number 5, how dominate the pitchers can be when they are at their best, and how healthy you can expect the starters to remain.
