One thing I wanted to add. Rapier you said in your post:
Glavine led Braves
Just wondering, did you choose Glavine because you think he was the leader of that staff, or you just picked someone? I for one believe that Greg Maddux was the ace of that staff, and it's not really debateable.
I don't think there's any doubt Maddux was the leader of that staff as well. Glavine, Smoltz and Maddux were all around the same age but Maddux was the class of the staff. We're talking about a guy who only allowed 9 home runs all season and walked TWENTY. His control was off the charts.
I remember one game the Cards were playing the Braves and Maddux walked one of our guys. For some reason they showed Maddux' reaction in slow motion and you could clearly read his lips..."hey, fuck you." The man just didn't walk people, he was the leader and he was unhittable during that period of time.
So yeah, let's wait and see on Philly. They've done nothing together yet.
-Indians in '51: Bob Feller, Mike Garcia and Early Wynn all won at least 20 games.
-Mid 60's Dodgers: Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale. Enough said
-1905-07 Chicago Cubs: Buttons Briggs, Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown, Carl Lundgren, Ed Reulbach, Jake Weimer and Bob Wicker. All had an ERA+ above 120.
-'27 Yankees: Waite Hoyt, Herb Pennock and Urban Shocker
