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.
I think Cueto's numbers on the road are a bit of an anomaly. His ERA is actually lower on the road. He did pitch a lot of games with funky line-ups.
I can't argue with the ace on the hump in game one.
