The league championship series for both the AL and NL start this weekend. Each of the four participants has a guy that can be considered a legit ace of a staff.

My question to you is which of the four would you pick to start for your staff, and how would you rank all four in terms of preference.

I think my first choice is Roy Halladay for the simple reason that he always works deep into the game and has shown he can flat out dominate people. From there I’d take C.C. Sabathia because of his experience in the playoffs with the Yankees. If those two were gone, I’d select Tim Lincecum. I don’t necessarily think he’s better than Lee in the playoffs, but I like his ability to make hitters look silly. If all of those guys were gone, I’d settle on Cliff Lee and be happy. After all, it’s better than Zambrano.

Check back later today when we reveal the final report cards for all of the Cubs players that were reviewed in our series.
