I can't see Dusty leaving Arroyo off to put Hamilton on. I also don't see Hamilton on there leaving Ludwick off; Hamilton definitely adds an extra dimension to our game, but Ludwick might well be needed down the line.
As far as the pitchers you have automatically. Do you really think we should have Cueto, Cingrani, and Marshall? Lots of recent injuries with only short recovery time; what happens when 1 or 2 of them gets hurt again. Marshall struggled quite a bit last night as well.
I do agree that Arroyo isn't a great match for the bullpen, but I can't see him being left off the post-season roster.
