So I myself am struggling with this. What's your 3-man rotation (though admittedly usage of four starters becomes necessary or advisable for some teams in some years) if the Reds make the playoffs?
No. 1 starter Johnny Cueto
No. 2 starter Travis Wood
No. 3 starter Homer Bailey (though there are many good reasons for Arroyo)
I'm having a hard time deciphering between those four. Volquez is actually the type of guy that can dominate more than any of them, but he's also the least reliable right now in my opinion.
If the Reds make the playoffs, how would you structure the rotation? Assume a 3-man lineup.
