would anyone still consider MA Burnes a Top 5 pitcher?

Just curious in your thoughts.

I haven't used him yet (trying to get 42 Pedro Martinez paralled) and was curious if anyone thinks he still deserves a roster spot.

SDS

I never had much success with him but I am sure some others will never take him out of the rotation. It really depends on your opponent and how often they see/saw the guy.

SDS

He could slot in at number 5 but I don’t like burnes because all his useable stuff seems too hard.

On HOF+ anybody works tho.

SDS

If you are talking about the POTM Burnes yes. I still like him best and my rotation is Lee, Oswalt, Burnes, Cabrera, Glavine. Burnes with the high velo sinker AND cutter makes him easier to keep hitter off balance. Lee has same type pitches but lower velo. But Oswalt/Cabrera are both nasty, especially on HOF

SDS

Depends what youtube tells me. I can’t make my own decisions so I just do whatever the content creators do.

SDS

I imagine ill use him for at least a bit here. I like him a little better then Lee tbh but I do think Cabrera is my favorite. Still grinding through team affinity to get more options as I only have the east divisions done.

I was thinking of the same rotation, once I get the players. We'll, except for Glabin right now. But what I was really contemplating is whether or not he was worth a space in my rotation as I suck with his LS card.

I know each card plays different for each person that uses it. So I may just have to see what happens.

I think I'll end up with Lee, Oswalt, Cabrera, 42 Pedro (until a better Red Sox version is released) and POTM Burnes. Burnes will be the odd man out once a better fifth option is released.

SDS

Burnes sucks lol. He’s strictly a pitch to contact pitcher and that’s not good with how broken contact swinging is. He doesn’t have like an A+ out pitch. Find his very easy to hit

Well don’t listen to gutfox. I like the dude a lot but not having Fernando venazuela in the top 5 is laughable.

SDS

Glavine
Lee
Crochet (sp?)
Cabrera
Burnes

That’s my 5 right now. I just got Oswald but his lower H/9 scares me

SDS

Glavine Valenzuela Maddux Hershiser Burnes

Three lefty pitchers with all the power right handed hitters?

SDS

Burnes is great vs the AI when you are grinding TA2 plate appearances. His pitching motion is so quick it saves you at least 8-10 minutes off the full game time.

SDS

My current rotation is:

Oswalt (P3)
Prior (P2)
Burnes (P5)
Tanana (P3)
Crochet (P2)

He didn’t put him in the top 5 because he based his ratings off usability on all-star. I’m sure he feels Valenzuela is top 5 if you only play HOF-Legend. He explains that in the video though....

Lol he’s unhittable in all star too. Don’t care what reason was given.

If you wanna run a game on all star and show me how hittable he is let me know.

The rest of his list was solid and he is enjoyable to watch and a like able guy. Just not his SP list. Like putting Chapman at #1 RP but leaving a clone SP off top 5.

Meh. It’s pretty even on lefty/right power hitters from what Ive noticed. Besides most splits are negligible on 95+ cards save for a few. But lefty/righty is harder then righty/lefty as most pitchers are right handed.

Saying that my rotation is more like a 7 man one, lol. Those are just my favorite 5 ATm
