2011 MLB Preview: Power Ranking Roy Halladay and The Best Pitchers In Baseball

Check out last week's rankings here.

In the year of the pitcher, the Giants proved that they had the best overall staff in baseball by winning the World Series.

The Phillies counter-punched in the offseason with the acquisition of Cliff Lee.  On paper, the Phillies now have the best starting rotation in baseball.

Depth-wise, the Yankees starting rotation is pitiful.  

After Lee signed with Philadelphia, the Bronx Bombers instead addressed the bullpen with the signing of Rafael Soriano. 

With a solid pen and a deadly lineup, Yankee starters won't have to do much.  Soriano and Mariano Rivera shorten the game.

 

I give each player a number. Here's the layout:

10: Best player/pitcher in baseball

9-plus: Superstar, MVP/Cy Young Candidates

8-plus: Consistent All-Star

7.5: Periodical All-Star

7.25: Solid Starter

7: Average Player
