We've seen dream rotations before, haven't we?
The A's had one in the late 90s, the Yankees had one of the best ever in 2003, and the Phillies assembled a super squad in 2010.
And so now, here the Detroit Tigers, lining up the last 3 Cy Young award winners plus Rich Porcello to face the Yankees. This is what October will feel like, if the Yankees can get there. Might as well get used to it.
They turn to recent import Brandon McCarthy to face down Max Scherzer.
Go Yankees. Go baseball.
