The notion that the strength of a starting rotation typically dictates where a team will end up by the end of the season is a nice theory and all, but one particular team in the National League is making a strong case that starting pitching is way overrated. How else can you explain the Dodgers, with six starting pitchers on the disabled list, firmly holding their grasp onto the top spot in the NL West? They're without Clayton Kershaw and a whole mess of others, while piecing together a rotation consisting of (today at least) Rich Hill, Bud Norris, Ross Stripling, Julio Urias, and...well, pick someone.
