I would have thought one of Connie Mack's teams would be up there, or McGraw's, or some other old crew. The 1914 A's had three outstanding players just starting their careers (Shawkey 23, Bush 21 and Pennock 20), plus Plank at the end of his career. The 1919 Red Sox had several great young pitchers, including Bush and Pennock again. Hoyt was only 19.

Is it perhaps in part because there are so many more pitchers these days?

Sabathia, Lee, Carmona, Westbrook... sigh.

Pitchers that people expect to be the pitcher of a generation flame out...sometimes they go on to greatness....

I remember the 69 mets I lived in new York and was a fan and what they did that year still makes me smile...because other tnen the extraordinary pitching, the rest was just constant platooning by Hodges and both Cleon Jones and Tommy Agee having banner years.

It s easy to remember Seaver and Kossman and the young Nolan Ryan...what I also remember was Don Cardwell a jouneyman picher and the fourth starter who gave them a lot of innings and was way better then his 8 and 10 record indicated.

They've certainly got a great shot at 1000.

Other than that I thought of the 2003 Marlins who had a very young group who still have several years left - Beckett, Burnett, Pavano, Penny, Willis.

I also would be interested in seeing who traded away the most potential as it were, and also be interested to see a list like this but only including wins or WAR for the team they were on at that time - ie discard anything after they moved on. This would be interesting to see who had the rotation with the most potential and kept it together to get the most out of it. I would imagine this would lean towards older teams when player movement was less common.
