You need that Game 1. It sets the tone for the entire series. Latos has OWNED the Giants throughout his entire career. Setting him up for Game 1 would've allowed him to pitch a potential Game 5 in Cincinnati.
Game 2: Homer Bailey
9-2 with a 2.45 Road ERA. He is scheduled to pitch (if necessary) Game 4 at HOME, where he is sporting an ERA in the mid 5's. Make's much sense.
Game 3: Johnny Cueto
10-3 with a 2.79 ERA at Home.
Pitching at GABP can be tricky at times. If anyone has mastered to pitch at GABP is Mr. Cueto.
Arroyo should be left off the roster as far as i'm concerned.
That's your opinion....but to say that it is idiotic is going a little far. I don't have a problem with the rotation. Would I like to see Homer pitch in San Fran...sure, but Homer has been pitching good recently, and that includes at GABP. His last home start they showed some stats that showed he was coming around at GABP. Plus with throwing the no-no, his confidence is thru the roof. How about doing some more supporting and rooting for the 2012 NL Central champs and a lot less name calling....just saying dude!!!
