By signing Cliff Lee back onto the team, the Phillies now have what is without a doubt the best pitching rotation in Major League baseball. In fact, a case could easily be made that this is the greatest pitching rotation of all time.
The Phillies top four in the pitching rotation in 2011 will likely be Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels. Each of these pitchers is capable of winning a Cy Young in any given year.
With this pitching rotation, the Phillies have set themselves up as the front runners for the 2011 World Series and if their talent pans out, a claim to the greatest pitching rotation of all time.
