But I think having Latos pitching on normal rest trumps everything.
He pitched 4 innings last game on 3 days rest, and certainly didn't look as sharp as he has been looking lately.
Some of Mat's lack of sharpness should be attributed to lifting weights/long-tossing before the game. Given all that, I find it remarkable he did as well as he did.
This would be short rest, but without those other probable detrimental affects.
Go Homer! Make this all irrelevant. I was skeptical of Bronson on Sunday, and I am not real positive in attitude about Homer given his road/home splits, but I was wrong two days ago. Would be thrilled to be wrong again.
