I will be in the minority here but I like Beckett the best of the 3. When healthy, he is the most dominant. I'll give Burnett the slight edge over Wood, but not sure why. Truth is, I'd be happy with any of them as my #2, but probably not comfortable as my #1.

Interestingly enough they are #13-16 in my pre-season rankings.

#13 Kerry Wood
#14 Carlos Zambrano
#15 Josh Beckett
#16 AJ Burnett

IMO they are very close in value for 2005.

Wood
Burnett
Becket

Just curious, if I may add two names to this list (I am trying not to "hijack" the thread to an entirely different topic), where would Halladay and Harden belong on this list?

Wood #1 and the other two, burnett and beckett, take either or. Neither one of them have ever been as dominant as KWood, nor will they be. I wouldn't be surprised if Kwood had another 20K game this year

Actually, Burnett's best year was pretty close to Wood's best year. I also firmly believe that inning for inning, Beckett is a much better pitcher than Wood is right now.

That being said, there are pros and cons for each pitcher. I'm really down on Wood this season because of the latest injury issues and how he performed due to it in 04. I don't usually get too emotionally involved with players but with Wood, I've had 4 up and down years so I can't help it.
