    Best pitching tandem in MLB

    The Reds have had a very good 1-2 punch with Arroyo and Harang this season and it got me thinking. There seem to be a lot of teams that have a very solid tandem at the top of their rotation this year. What tandem would you want leading your teams rotation based on what they have/are doing for their teams this year.

    Some of the better tandems this year, their ERA, and their combined records:
    Arroyo(2.58) and Harang(3.45) 18-9
    Liriano(2.21) and Santana(2.59) 17-5
    Beckett(4.64) and Schilling(3.54) 20-5
    Glavine(3.34) and Martinez(3.45) 18-6
    Buehrle(3.22) and Contreras(3.54) 17-4
    Rogers(3.72) and Verlander(3.13) 20-7
    Zito(3.46) and Haren(3.53) 14-10 (Harden 3.86 3-0 only pitched 6 games)
    Halladay(3.22) and Lilly(3.87) 18-9
    Kazmir(3.59) and Hendrickson(3.81) 13-13

    I think I would have to go with Liriano and Santana. No matter who you take on that list though if you have any hitting at all and even a decent bullpen your team is going to have a chance.

    "The guy I think could be really good in center is Adam Dunn. If someone asked me if Dunn could be a center fielder for the next 10 years, if he started working on it, no one could explain to me why he couldn’t do it." - Brad Kullman
