Angry Toughest Lefty in the game?

I know you guys may say Kershaw or Sale gets the title here. But I think that Jon Lester takes the cake here. That sweeping curveball along with his mid 90's fastball sometimes overwhelms me. Whenever I face him in my Yankees franchise he racks up 10+ K's every game. It's a dread fest each and every time.

Who do you guys think is the toughest Lefty? Feel free to opine and discuss.

Anyone that starts for Seattle at Safeco.

I don't have any problems with lefties at Safeco, only righties.

Aroldis Chapman. When he's on and has command of his slider, he is wicked. I cannot for the life of me hit against him.

I remember facing James paxton at safeco. I struggled against him, but I made solid contact against him at least. With Lester it always a bunch of groundballs, strikeouts, and popups. One day I'm going to tag himand hit him hard...and I will document the hell out of it.

I would have to say Chris Sale is the toughest lefty I've faced so far in The Show. His slider is lethal. I don't think I made contact off that pitch all game when I faced him a while back.
