We have beat Cain twice this year. Pitch our hot pitcher, Latos game one. Pitch Bailey against Lincecum.
If Cueto pitches good his next start, start him game 1 and Latos game 3. However Bailey needs to be game #2 starter. He's been pitching great and he will be in a big ball park.
I think it was Francona who pointed out that lately, Bailey has been lights out in GABP. I'm not sure ERA splits for the entire year are a level of analysis that quickly provides the conclusion that "Bailey is a better pitcher on the road, so he should pitch game 1 or game 2 in the first playoff series."
