The Greatest Rotation In Every MLB Team’s History

Atlanta Braves (1998)

John Smoltz – Tom Glavine – Greg Maddux – Denny Neagles – Kevin Milwood

OK, the 1993 and 1997 Atlanta staffs certainly have legitimate cases to be in this spot. In fact, the 1997 group, highlighted by John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux and Denny Neagle, is quite comparable to our pick from ’98 – in terms of makeup and statistics. That foursome was back in ’98, when Glavine won 20, Maddux totaled 18 victories while Smoltz recorded 17 and Neagle 16. Add 17 wins from Kevin Millwood in his first full major-league season, and the Atlanta starters set a franchise record with 90 victories, while posting a 3.06 ERA. However, just like the 1997 club, these Braves lost in the National League Championship Series.
