My rule would be that guys like Marshall, Chapman, maybe even Broxton pitch their normal roles if they can. Even if a bit tired. High level relievers if healthy.
But when you're dealing with guys like Alfredo Simon, I'd rather have a rested Hoover. Simon isn't at the high level that warrants use when tired.

We're bad again. Go get Arizona.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

Good game everyone. Good series. Should be a fun race the rest of the year.
I'm still predicting the Reds win the division by double digits.
