So if they go with 11 pitchers I would suspect:
and then you are left picking three from - Arroyo, Leake, Simon, Duke, Parra, and Ondrusek. That means someone that has contributed pretty heavily to the season is going to be left off. Personally I go with Leake, Duke (gives 4 lefties out of the bull pen), and Simon whom Dusty has weighed pretty heavily on all year. The Reds only need a couple long middle relief guys and LeCure is one of the best in the business, and Arroyo is the type of guy that needs an inning or two to get in the grove which isn't what you want in that type of position. So unless Arroyo is going to start, he should be left off the post season roster altogether.
That means Hamilton being on the post season roster would likely be what knocks Arroyo off.
