Who's pitching, who's playing, NLDS
Pitching - Arroyo tonight. Reds have Simon, Hoover, and Arredondo completely available and rested for relief. Of course, other relievers are available too, but some worked much last night. Lecure least likely reliever after almost two innings last night.
If Arroyo has early trouble, Bailey could pitch, he's now had three days rest after a brief start Wednesday.
Position players - Lefty pitching for SF. Only question I see is whether Navarro gets a start. He's a switcher, but hits lefties well. My guess is Hanigan starts, same lineup as yesterday.
Future games - Seems to me Tuesday night is Cueto or Bailey. Really not a big deal which one starts - as long as the other is ok for Wednesday. Then Latos would be available for Game 5, Arroyo as a backup if early trouble.
Problem only arises if Cueto can't go. Then I assume they will use Homer Tuesday, Latos Wedneday, Arroyo Thursday, with the last two guys working on three days rest.
Giants have a deep rotation with Vogelsong, Lincecum, Zito, no idea who will pitch the later games of the series. Don't see many changes in Reds starting lineup in any event. Maybe Navarro catches once. Maybe Heisey faces a righty at GABP over Stubbs. Maybe no changes at all.
