A few weeks ago, a reader asked for a breakdown of exactly what kind of wins we could expect out of each slot in the rotation. To answer this question, I took the top starters from each team in terms of number of starts and then added the highest win total as the number one starter and so on down the line through the fifth spot in the rotation. What I found confirmed, yet again, that the Cubs are well above average in the starting pitching department. Here is a breakdown of the wins by rotation spot for every team in 2007 along with the average by team and rotation spot.

Can we finally put away the debate about whether or not the Cubs needed to go out and get Bedard? I’m perfectly content with what we have in house going into this season.

Don’t forget that if you’re interested in competing in the 2008 VFTB vs. Rays of Light fantasy baseball challenge on MLB Fantasy Open, shoot me an e-mail:

We’ve got 3 spots left for our team. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, here was the post about it.
