USAToday's Sports Weekly choose its top 50 starting pitchers for 2005.
Dontrelle Willis was ranked as the second best pitcher in the Major Leagues for 2005. He finished behind the, apparently, bionic Roger Clemens.
A well deserved rating, in my opinion.
Josh Beckett, of the Mariners (the Mariners?!?), came in at 16, while Burnett holds down the 24th position on the list.
I didn't notice Leiter's name among the top 50, but it is was probably an oversight on my part.
In other news, the club made some adjustments to the 40-man roster by getting it down to 40.
They will probably be sent to the Minors, assuming they aren't claimed off the waiver wire by another team.
And that, my friends, is the news of the moment.
