Lockdown pitching wins championships; and the teams with the two best rotations, in my eyes, are the Tigers and the Nationals. Top to bottom, both of their pitching staffs are loaded. I see the Tigers having a tough time getting past both Baltimore and Los Angeles (if that’s who they face) but the Tigers pitching has playoff experience, depth, and overpowering stuff. But in the end, I just think the Nationals want it more and are the more complete team. Plus, the Washington bullpen had the 2nd best ERA in the NL.
