Best 5 Man Rotation Ever?

The rumors are hot again about the Cubs landing Jake Peavy.  This time it involves a three way deal with the Orioles.  It works like this, Pie to Baltimore for left handed starting pitcher Garrett Olson.  The Cubs then use him to sweeten the pot for the Padres.  If this were to happen, would the ’09 Cubs have the best 5 man rotation ever?


I’m sure teams have had a stronger one, two punch but I can’t remember a stronger 5 man rotation.  If someone gets a little wore down we could still have Marquis to plug in for some rest.  Even with this Formidable Five, the little evil tiny voice of reason is screaming “It’s the Cubs, they will find a way to screw this up too!”

    Wow…that would be awesome. But you are correct, they would find a way to blow it.

    I’m trying to think of a better 5-man rotation, but I can’t. The closest I can come is the Braves of the 1990s (as much as I hate to say it), but I can’t for the life of me think of their fifth man.

    Jeez. Forget Five… imagine the three or four man rotaion in the post season! Carlos starting games 1, 4 & 7 if needed – fill in the blanks with the other four. Have a feeling my Cards will be looking up to the Cubbies in the standings all summer.
