ERA: 2.45 vs 2.61
WHIP: 1.14 vs 1.19
BAA: .211 vs .248
Subtract Lato's first two months and it appears as though we have two clear #1 starters. This is a good problem to have.
In a playoff situation you could go one of two ways, assuming Cuteo and Latos are going to get starts. You could go with Arroyo who pitches fancy and has experience or with Bailey who has of recent shown pure brilliance on the mound. It really depends on how they'd be pitching going into October.
With the new playoff format, I think you should go with Latos in the first game on the road (assuming we are the higher seed) because he can really set the tone with his devastating strikeouts.
Then go with Bailey or Arroyo based on matchup for the second game.
Then you have to use Cueto for first home game. He is ridiculous at GABP.
