I think give Leake a shot- have a quick hook and go to our bullpen immediately if we fall behind by 2-3 early. Lecure, Simon, etc to try to get to the 7-8th.
You have to have Latos ready for game 5 IMO just in case. That way if we dont need game 5, you have him for game 1 of LCS assuming Cueto is not available.
I don't really like this train of thought. I say go Latos in game 4 because of Zito pitching. We are more apt to score some runs off of him than we are Cain in game 5. So...since we should get some more scoring oppurtunities today, throw someone that will give us a better chance to win today. Then you can come back with Arroyo and Bailey in the next round. Remember that if we win today we will get a few days off so that will help. I say get this over today and 1 we save Cueto for next round if he can get healthy, if not we can still use Leake. Just my opinion, to each his own!!! GO REDS!!!!
