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!”
