Default Best Pitching Rotation?

Baseball is the sport I know least about so I want to post the question:

What is the best pitching rotation of all time in your opinion?

Again my knowledge is limited but for me Smoltz, Maddux, and Glavine is pretty tough.

As an A's fan Hudson, Zito, Mulder and Blue, Hunter, Holtzman.

Smoltz, Maddux, Glavine Neagle Millwood probably. but the Koufax, Drysdale Sutton and osteen lineup was ridiculous too.

1971 Baltimore Orioles had 4 twenty game winners. I am pretty sure they were the only team to ever do that.

Hard to argue with that.

I just looked it up. The 1920 Chicago White Sox also had 4 twenty game winners, but the difference was no one on the Orioles lost more than 9 games, whereas the Sox had 3 guys with double digit loses.

I was talking more about cores that were proven successful in the longer run. Were these groups together for a few seasons?

Yes. The Orioles produced something like 9 20 win seasons from that core over a period of like 3-4 years. 1971 in particular had 4 of those 9 20 win seasons.

I can almost guarantee you Smoltz is making it too the Hall of Fame too. He has 200+ wins and 150+ saves. You know the only other player to ever do this in the majors? Dennis Eckersley. Who is in the hall of fame with 197 wins, 350 saves.

That rotation was just plain sick. Weird how Maddux was the CY young guy that year but not in the all star game lmao.
