Re: 9.5.12 Phillies @ Reds (the Start of the Didi Gregorius era and the Return of Vot
The Reds will only need four starters on the postseason roster. No matter the series (LDS, LCS, WS), a four man rotation will guarantee at least four days' rest for all starters.
So the question for Leake becomes: is he one of the four best starters on this team?
If that answer is no, then I honestly don't see a spot for him on a postseason roster. Leake's only value would be during a long extra inning game where he could go extended innings and actually be able to hit for himself. I don't think those types of games happen often enough to justify a roster spot for him.
