Baseball is definitely becoming a more offensively-minded game, but there is still a large role for the starting rotation. This group of five pitchers is responsible for neutralizing this growing threat for a majority of every game.
I intend to celebrate some of the best starting rotations in recent memory with my article today. I am going to select the top 10 rotations of the past 25 years since using a much longer period of time would be incredibly difficult and would admittedly omit plenty of deserving teams.
Still, with only 10 positions for every team since 1989, it is a tall order, but I hope to hit the best of the best.
