It seems like everyone is talking about how great the Ray’s starting rotation is. But when I dig deeper, it looks like many of their starters have had a fair amount of luck thus far. Using Pitchometer to look at rotations based on FIP, the Rays rotation doesn’t look as “awesome” as is widely publicized. In comparison, the Red Sox rotation (despite an injured Beckett and lousy Lackey) looks better.
