A baseball team is nothing without a solid starting rotation. Nothing makes a great baseball team like a one-two punch in that starting rotation. In 2009, the World Series champion New York Yankees had CC Sabathia and AJ Burnett. In 2010, the Giants won the World Series with Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain. So it goes to show that a solid one-two punch in your rotation can lead to a ring come October.
As a fan, I am very happy and comfortable knowing that the top two pitchers on my team will get a victory every week.
Having many great pitchers in the Majors, it is hard to decipher the greatest one-two punches in the game right now. Through much analysis, however, I am very confident that I can name the top 5 best one-two starting pitchers in the Major Leagues.
