There was a lot of teams that had three great starting pitchers in there rotation, but in your opinion who do you think was the best and why?

Personally I believe it was the Maddux, Smoltz and Glavine trio, they were just to dominant, they won't a lot of NL East titles, and they got what's most important wins. Here's a few numbers.

-Maddux from 1993-2003 had 194 wins
-Smoltz from 1993-2003 had 106 wins and 110 saves
-Glavine from 1993-2002 had 169 wins

which means if you equal all those together it makes:

469 wins and 110 saves which is remarkable.

I liked the Hudson, Mulder, Zito trio on the A's. I think that the former Braves trio is better though.

Currently, I hate to do it but I have to say Beckett, teletubbie, and Schilling.
I'd have to give it to the Smoltz/Maddux/Glavine trio, but if you look at a Negro League aspect, the Paige/Rogan/Day trio of the early 30s may have been better.
