Baseball 2012: MLB's Top 13 Starting Rotations in the Fantasy Realm

Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg (15-5, 2.85 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, 183/43 K-BB) has held opponents to a .195 batting average in his last six appearances.

The following listing touts Major League Baseball's top 13 starting rotations in the fantasy realm from a seasonal perspective.

Why only 13 teams? While in the process of ranking clubs 14 through 19, it became painfully clear that baseball is awash in middling fantasy rotations, typically featuring two studs and three or four eminently replaceable assets on the back end.

As a result, it wasn't worth the time and/or effort to deify the 14th and 15th clubs while denigrating the equally talented and flawed teams at Nos. 16, 17, 18 and 19.

Of course, the quandaries weren't exclusive to the units at the end of the countdown. The No. 1 rotation may be on the brink of mortality...if/when their franchise anchor approaches an innings mark of 160-180.

Enjoy the show!
