GIANT Rotation

NOTE: I just washed my eyes out so all of this is real.

I never would have said this even though they have a CY Young Winner, but the Giants have the best rotation in the MLB!

The Rotation:

Tim Lincecum (8-2), with eight wins and only two losses, sided by six no decisions, Lincecum has been great, leading the league with strikeouts at 132, he just pitched a complete game against one of the best teams in the league, the Cardinals, only giving up two hits, this guy will be chasing his second CY Young Award in a row.

Randy Johnson (8-6), I never thought I would be admiring his stuff at about 45 years old, but I am, of course his innings are limtited, he still has thrown more than 88 innings so far, and the Big Unit, is still dangerous with three wins in a row.

Matt Cain (9-2), a 2.47 ERA, 107 innings pitched, this guy has a shot at the CY Young Award as well!  Heck, if this continues the Giants could have three pitchers touch 20 wins, of course they would also need more run support!

Barry Zito (4-7), his losses are deceiving are deceiving, he has a decent ERA at 4.55, and when he heats up this rotation will only solidify itself, as Zito always has gotten the job done.

Jonathan O. Sanchez (2-8), Sanchez has the least talent in the rotation but he's still a pitcher to be reckoned with, he just hasn't gotten enough run support to pick up the win.

So now who's with me that this is the best rotation in the league?

Most Astonishing Fact:
Tim Lincecum who is in my mind, the best pitcher in the game right now, has a salary equivilant to many minor leaguers at 350,000!
