The lefty. Some of baseball's most notable pitchers over the last century have been left-handed. From Warren Spahn to Sandy Koufax to Randy Johnson, these are just a few of the many left-handers that have changed the way many baseball fans view lefties in the game today.

But what exactly is special about southpaws? Well I'll just put it to you this way: How many other sports do you know of where a left-handed player plays as much of an important role on a team, than a left-handed starting pitcher in the Major Leagues? None.

In baseball's early years, many thought that pitchers who were left-handed did in fact have somewhat of an unique edge against their opponents. We still see somewhat of a similar type of edge today between left-handed hitters facing left-handed pitchers, especially in a manager's call to the bullpen late in a game to get a juicy lefty-lefty match-up.

No closers or relievers in this list though. Here now are the best 25 left-handed starting pitchers in the game of baseball today. Enjoy.
