For this era I would have to say Randy Johnson, Justin Verlander and Greg Maddux. Verlander needs a few more years of dominance for me to pencil him in permanently though. Same with my favorite, David Price. If he keeps improving and the Rays keep improving around him he will be a Cy Young contender every year.

verlander is just too soon, same as price. along with johnson and maddux, you gotta include pedro, though somewhat like koufax, longevity isnt there (though pedro lasted longer)
