Most baseball fans can agree that the most important aspect of any roster is the construction of the starting rotation. That’s not to say feel free to neglect everything else, but it’s obvious any team would have a difficult time contending without a collection of capable and reliable arms able to endure a long regular season and then be able to handle the pressure in October.
And you can never have enough starting pitchers. Never!
So, if New York Yankees fans wanted yet another reason to be infuriated about this 2021 campaign, they can look across the country to the Los Angeles Dodgers, who stole the Bombers’ thunder at the trade deadline when they acquired Max Scherzer and Trea Turner from the Washington Nationals.
