For me that would be 1-7-7-7 with no days off except between series. Number 5 starters would likely come into play. At times teams are able to play successive days on opposite coasts during the regular season by scheduling a night game after a day game. Why not during the playoffs?
Agreed. I believe the 2010 World Champion Giants had more off days during the playoffs than they did during the entire regular season. Its ridiculous.
