Just won the 4th playoff series with Legends. Still my record against them is 19-41, as they beat me bad when I started playing them. Treating every series with them as a work in progress, here is the team that I feel should play very strongly against them.
Trout/Brantley (this is a toss up between more homers or more steals, BATTING AVG IS COMPARABLE)
Except Sale, every pitcher is a righty. And honestly, Sale does get hit by them often and has the highest ERA among the five.
One thing I have changed is not to use all 5 starters in my rotation. Using the ice pack, these are the matchups I have used the last 2 times in playoffs (won 4-2 and 4-1).
Hernandez v/s Kershaw
Cueto v/s Mad Bum
Hernandez v/s Sale
Cueto v/s Cueto
Hernandez v/s Darvish
Sale and Jose Fernandez hardly protect me as Legends always score handily against them. Tanaka would be my 3rd choice, after Hernandez and Cueto.
