Rotation Strength

Baseball season is less than a month away, so to occupy sometime I think its fitting if we began a discussion about the state of the rotations for both the Yankees and the Red Sox. Starting tomorrow I will be doing a five-part series comparing the two rotations against each other from top to bottom. At the end of the week we will see which one stacks up the best.

First up on the list will be the staff aces Jon Lester and CC Sabathia.

You wouldn't say Beckett is the Red Sox #1?

Is John Lester really considered an ace after one complete season?

Peter said...

Beckett honestly had one season where he performed at a level that could be considered "ace" so what's the difference between giving Lester consideration as a #1 after one season and dropping Beckett down to #2?

I guess my thought was that if the two teams meet in the ALCS the game 1 match-up would be Beckett and Sabathia.
