And yes, it means Cueto pitches game #5. Who else? Leake would be the only other available starter with enough rest, assuming he makes the roster.
Well, it's obviously too late now, but Bailey could've been skipped altogether last night in a meaningless game and gone out and pitched game 2 in San Fran, since he's much better on the road.
I would have gone...
Latos - Game 1
Bailey - Game 2
Cueto - Game 3
Latos - Game 4
Arroyo/Bailey - Game 5 if necessary
