Re: Dusty hints at playoff rotation... 3 man rotation, No Bailey

While that's true in the regular season, probably less true in the playoffs where the breaks between innings are longer and the every game adds on 30 minutes.
Plus if Arroyo had to come out in the 2nd or 3rd inning, you'd probably be looking at Lecure for an inning + before Homer had to go in to eat innings 5-8 or something.
That's a worst case scenario of course. If he's not going to start at all in the series, he's probably best left off the roster.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
