THEY DON'T MAKE TANDEMS LIKE THAT OFTEN (via Glenn Dryfoos):

Not just both 300 game winners but excellent fielders and hitters. The best duo since Seaver/Koosman.

Glavine, Maddox and Smoltz. Can anyone think of any other teams that had three (likely) Hall of Fame pitchers at one time? I can't think of one...

1930 New York Yankees:

Red Ruffing, Lefty Gomez, Herb Pennock and Waite Hoyt

Schilling and Johnson were quite the pair, even if only for a season or two.

Koufax and Drysdale.

It's harder to think of three. The Orioles had their great starters in the late 60s and early 70s, but Jim Palmer is the only one in the Hall (isn't he?).

The 1954 Indians?

Clemens, Mussina, Pettite (for Jim/Chicago).

Schilling, Wakefield, Dice-K or Papelbon (for OJ).

The late 20s and early 30s Phila. A's.
