Your Weekly Sporcle: Diamondbacks Rotations

New, 12 comments

The season gets under way, with the Diamondbacks starting pitching an area of concern. But how much do you remember about previous Arizona rotations?

This is based simply off the first five different pitchers each year to start games for the team [which may not be the first five games, due to off-days, Australia trips, etc.] It's quite educational to look back and see what things were like in previous years. When you've finished taking the quiz, and can see all the answers, which season do you think had the best overall rotation? It's interesting to see that, even in seasons like 2001-02, we weren't insanely strong at the back end, just good enough. And perhaps more fun, which one was the worst?

As usual, last names only are fine. Which may be a bit tricky for one member of the current rotation, but I threw up a few possible answers there, so I think I've got most of the alternative possibilities covered! There are 90 names in total, but there are plenty of duplicates that should help boost your score. Everyone should be able to get at least 45 of these, and a good target would by 60.
