    On the baseball prospectus podcast "Effectively Wild" on September 24th, 2013, Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller ranked playoff rotations, you may be interested to listen. (towards the middle-end of podcast)

    My rankings (Projected top 4, though not necessarily in order as some teams plan for 1 game playoff):

    Tigers (Scherzer, Sanchez, Verlander, Fister)

    Dodgers (Kershaw, Greinke, Ryu, Nolasco)

    Red Sox (Lester, Buchholz, Lackey, Peavy)

    Rays (Price, Moore, Cobb, Archer)

    Reds (Latos, Bailey, Leake, Arroyo/Cueto)

    Cardinals (Wainwright, Miller, Wacha, Kelly)

    Pirates (Liriano, Burnett, Morton, Cole)

    Indians (Jimenez, Kluber, Kazmir, Salazar)

    Braves (Medlen, Minor, Teheran, Garcia/Maholm)

    A's (Colon, Parker, Griffin, Gray)

    All these teams have very good rotations. The Tigers and Dodgers are in a tier of their own
