Mike Leake was originally scheduled to start Tuesday against the Brewers, but Dusty & Company are skipping Leake and moving Johnny Cueto up to start Tuesday. With the off day today, Cueto will be on regular rest. Leake will start Saturday against the Pirates in Pittsburgh. Does this mean Leake won't make the post season roster? I wonder why the change.

I would think Cueto would then pitch Sunday then pitch the following Satruday or Sunday of Game 1. I hope Leake makes the roster. He can warm up in a sufficient time frame if he goes long relief. Plus, as said a few times here, he has a good bat and can pinch run without using a "regular" player.
