    Danny Duffy is the best in my opinion. I have him in my rotation now and he frequently does well against many human teams in legends.

    Duffy then?

    My vote would be Homer Bailey or Danny Salazar.

    I too like Danny Salazar from the 4 star list. He would do well against humans and computer games.

    However (I know I'm breaking my right handers do better rule), but Francisco Liriano can be very difficult to hit depending on pitching upgrades.

    If I were playing against humans, I would use Liriano. If playing the computer or Legends, Salazar.

    I agree with Bailey and Liriano as well. Both have eras around 3.5 for me

    Danny Duffy is a lefty in real life but in the game he is mistakenly a righty. Also, there is no way he is the top 4 star pitcher in the game. 4 arm makes him easy to hit against humans, and 3 control makes him terrible against the computer.

    Latos on paper looks pretty darn good. He is a RHP with 5 pitches including 3 different fast*****.

    I had Homer Bailey for awhile and he got lit up by both the computer and humans.

    Where is Robotstove, he would be singing Duffy's praises.

    Yet, Duffy hits his spots when needed. Even hard hit pitches rarely find a hole. I can score against pitchers with 8 arm and 8 control. But Duffy shut me out during his outing.

    Busy playing TSB15 lol.

    Amused knows this already, But after I made my run for all players (and didn't quite get there) I did 50 of the 200 gold tourneys to get Duffy back in my lineup.

    I replaced Yu Darvish with Duffy, and I Ice Wrap him for Legends playoffs.

    He is the man. I just wish I could have had my hands on Cueto or Hernandez to compare though.
    In-game name: Robotstove
    In TSB 2014: Legends, beat playoffs fourteen times (RETIRED)
    In TSB 2015: Greatest of All Time (GOAT) (RETIRED)
    In TSB 2016: Recently returned and rising!

    I have come back to play TSB 2016, so you can join me and others in a general TSB 2016 chat using Discord: https://discord.gg/t9yTMgx

    Look forward to chatting with everyone!

    Don't get me wrong, I am a huge Duffy fan in real life. I guess I'm surprised with the success you've had with him in game.

    Salazar has not performed well for me against CPU.
    Need to experiment with Latos and Bailey.
    I love Liriano but he's inconsistent. Often gets nailed by CPU because of his 2 Control (OTOH, Chapman, with 1 Control, has been performing consistently well against CPU)
    Duffy has been my favorite 4* SP. I can't decide whether I should have him as my 5th SP or Smyly. Haven't been happy with Smyly as a 4.5* SP - I expect more from him.
