Sabathia-Burnett-Wang-Pettitte-Chamberlain

or

Sabathia-Wang-Burnett-Pettitte-Chamberlain

What do you think? Joe Girardi wants to keep Pettitte and Sabathia apart (lefties) and keep Burnett and Chamberlain apart (power pitchers).

I think either one works, although for the respect of Wang, I’d go with the second rotation. Apart from Pettitte, Wang is the one who deserves most recognition, so he should go second, meaning Burnett the power pitcher will go third, and Pettitte will hopefully re-create the kind of season Mussina had last year and what Greg Maddux had the last several years — smart pitching, finally giving away to power pitching in Chamberlain.
