Holy Shit, We Made Olney's Top Ten Rotations (Sort Of)

I'm on my iPhone so I can't post the insider-only link right now, but here's the text, in which the Dodgers end up with slot #10b:

10b. Los Angeles Dodgers Oh, sure, some of it's the park, and some of it's the division, and a whole lot of it is Clayton Kershaw, but the Dodgers ranked third in the majors in rotation ERA in 2011. Kershaw is probably the most coveted pitcher in the majors right now, given that he doesn't turn 24 until March and he already has had a season in which he posted baseball's lowest ERA. In the second half of the season, he went 12-1 with a 1.31 ERA, and that's a pretty good guy to have as an anchor to a rotation. Chad Billingsley and Ted Lilly are the No. 2 and No. 3 starters for the Dodgers; Hiroki Kuroda will be missed.

The non-World Champion Phillies got #1, with the Angels #3, Giants #4, and Snakes #5.

I find your lack of faith disturbing :_(

Could have been worse. We could have been 21b. Then it would have been impossible to get bacta the World Series.

True, but we wouldn't have gotten injured as much.

(I caught the bacta pun, btw. +1 for that)

+0.1 for me. I had to look it up, but I knew Hideo meant something by it
