I decided to check out the top 3 Starting Pitchers for National League teams in terms of WAR

The Dodgers are the only team with at least three pitchers with at least 3 WAR. The Dodgers top three starters are combined 5th best in the NL in WAR behind the Phillies, Marlins, Cardinals, and Rockies.

I’m thinking of checking the AL after this to see how the Dodgers compare in the MLB if anyone is interested.
