I think a healthy and effective colon will make the angels the best rotation. They dont have someone like jake peavy or dice k, but lackey is a solid #1. Everyone in this rotation will put up sub 4 era and they dont walk that many. Its a very deep rotation.

Wait, are you asking best ROTATION or best STAFF? I'm not sure why you say obviously not the Red Sox because of thier division. You could just look here:

For me, it's the Brewers.

Sheets
Bush
Capuano
Suppan
Vargas

Villaneuva
Gallardo

1-7 this is the best, IMO.

I think for complete staff you have to look to the Angels. A rotation of Lackey,Weaver,Santana,Escobar,Colon is solid. But what puts them over is arguably the best 1-2-3 setup men/closer in the MLB with Spier, Shields, and K Rod.

i don't get those that are saying it's redsox by far. sure, redsox could have the best pitching, but it's certainly not by far. padres and angels both could give them stiff competition. and if we are counting bullpen, it's no contest.

Agree with most here... Sox and SD... I'd actually give the edge to the Padres. I think they have a better ace (Peavy over the Sox top 3), good rotation, better setup guys, and the closers are a wash. The Sox have a lot going for them, but let's see how the setup guys work out and see if Lester can come up and be effective.

Let me give you my sleeper: The White Sox. I know, I know they are my favorite team, but let's not forget that, before last year, we were talking about this being one of the best ever. And all we lost was Freddy Garcia and instead have a nice young rookie who is pitching very well and keeping us in every ball game. Buehrle, obviously, appears to be back to his old self, and after his rocky Opening Day start, Contreras has settled down and looked brilliant. Vazquez is still pitching very, very good, and Garland is pitching Average. I think we could see lines like this from them this year:

Buehrle- 17-8, 3.70 ERA
Contreras- 16-10, 3.90 ERA
Garland- 18-8, 4.10 ERA
Vazquez- 14-11, 3.90 ERA
Danks- 12-12, 4.20 ERA

Its may not be overpowering, but I think with these 5 guys, we have a great chance to win every game. And the Bullpen is great too. They have pitched very well this year, and instead of being one of our biggest weaknesses last year, its one of our biggest strengths this year.

Now, if we could only get that offense going.... :-? Never thought I'd say that...
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.
