Who do you guys consider having the "best stuff" in baseball today.

My Top 10 would be something like this.

AJ Burnett
Eric Gagne
Brad Lidge
Ben Sheets
Rich Harden
Jose Contreras
Johan Santana
Roy Oswalt
Carlos Zambrano
Kelvim Escobar


Alright...Im sick of reading the word "throw" spelled as "through"...after that I pretty sure Burnett has nothing on Johan. While Burnett had some nasty stuff, his fastball isnt as great a Johan, his changeup isnt even close, and his curveball isnt necessarily comparible...I could say this about many of the pitchers you have lower than Burnett..

My list was not ranked it was just a Top 10 in no particular order. However, I disagree with you. Santana may have the best change up in the game today but Burnett's fastball is better than Santana's.

What about kerry wood in his prime? When he was on he was almost unhittable.
