2010-10-05 19:23:33 (link to chat)Where does the Phillies "Big Three" rank in terms of the best top 3 pitchers in one rotation in the last two decades or so?
(Ryan from Springfield, PA)
Towards the top, but slightly behind the 2005 Orioles C-Squared-L trio of Daniel Cabrera, Bruce Chen, and Rodrigo Lopez. (Roundtable Administrator)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm blinded by my Cubs fandom. Is Aramis Ramirez back now, or was it just a case of Snakes and pitching not mixing?
(mcquown from Chicago)
Remind me next season that if Rodrigo Lopez is in the rotation to pick the team for last place. Ramirez wasn't terrible in June, though it's a small sample, and he's looked great since he came back, though it's also a small sample. Probably worth keeping tabs on or tossing a flyer to if he's available due to someone else giving up in fantasy, but I'm not convinced in the real-world yet. (Marc Normandin)
