    Will Chapman pitch the 10th?

    Seems like a no brainer to me that if we dont score in the resumed bottom 9, you "leave Chapman in" to pitch another inning...agree?

    No way. Dusty will want to save him for an actual "save" situation in the scheduled game.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    That doesnt seem to make sense because a) Dusty was willing to use him in a tie game last night b) Utley and Howard will be up and c) the suspended game counts just as much as the "scheduled game" and it could be a blowout...

    In my mind, you turn the first game into a "2 at bats for Reds" vs. "1 at bat vs. Chapman for Phils" and you really like your chances...

    Dusty (and most managers) use their closers in the top of 9th during tie games. There will be no save situation for the rest of the game. Therefore, why not use what you have to maintain the tie. Hopefully Chappy will get the win.

    I think you're confusing real world logic and Dusty logic. I agree with you. I was being somewhat facetious, but I would not be the least surprised to see Dusty "save" Chapman for the scheduled game.

    Hopefully Cozart, Votto and Phillips make this a non-issue. But I think YES, you most definitely have to pitch Chappy. He threw around 16 pitches last night, so he should be ready. Also, the game is on the line use him now. What if for some reason, Leake comes out and blows up and gives up 7 runs. Then we have "saved" Chapman and he never gets used. If we need a save in game 2, then we have the luxury of Broxton.

    Exactly...plus, you know its Utley and Howard in game 1. Game 2 save situation might be the bottom of the order. Definitely more value using him in game 1...you have to figure that he will have to pitch at some point with Leake not likely to go very deep, and not knowing how long game 1 goes...might as well ensure he's in a big situation.

    The chances of winning the suspended game is far higher than the chances of winning the regular game today, given the circumstances and starting pitching of both games.

    You go win the the first one and let the second one work itself out.

    Assuming he is available (3 straight isn't usually a huge deal), I think it will happen.

    It would be 4 straight, although Sunday was very limited.

    I'm more interested who the Phillies pitch if someone gets on.

    Papelbon or a crappy lefty

    Seems like a no brainer -- but I've never been able to see into Dusty's brain

    I have a gift of being able to see some of Dusty's visions. Here is what he was thinking about today at lunch:
