Why are left handed pitchers valuable?

Lefty pitchers are valuble because they are a rare commodity. The ball comes off their fingers at a different angle and arm slot than would a righty typically and could be different for a batter to see. The way the ball moves is different in that a curve/slider will cut the opposite way (along with other pitches having different movement). The main reason is that against a lefty batter the lefty pitcher is highly affective. The batter doesn't have as much time to guage where the pitch is coming from, the spin the pitcher puts on it, or the velocity. This is the same reason why righties are more affective against righties and why a manager will pull a pitcher or put in a pinch hitter for these matchups.
