    Pitching rotation after the ASB

    Starting with the home Cardinal series to kick off the so called second half of the season, how would you set up the rotation?

    I would go with:

    Cueto
    Leake
    Latos
    Homer
    Bronson

    That gives you a bit of difference in style and power...

    I agree with this although it wouldn't surprise me to see Arroyo and Leake trade spots in your order.

    As long as Homer and Latos aren't back to back.

    I'd go...

    Latos (might want to not give him too long a time off)
    Cueto
    Bronson
    Homer
    Leake....switch Bronson and Leake if you want.

    I'll add to that saying I would rather not have Bronson and Leake back to back either... So doesn't sound terrible to me. Interesting consideration on Latos.

    I wouldn't mess with the starting pitching too much because they've been great so far.

    I see your Matt Garza and raise you:

    Greinke
    Cueto
    Leake
    Latos
    Arroyo

    Hey, it's fun to dream, right?

    Re: Pitching rotation after the ASB

    My guess is:
    Latos
    Arroyo
    Cueto
    Bailey
    Leake

    The Reds will want to give Cueto a week off to rest while he gets the last game in the Cardinal series. Arroyo will get Saturday even though Leake or Bailey argueably should have it. I don't like the matchup with Bronson, but they won't be able to resist.

    Basically Bailey and especially Leake are going to get lonnnnnnng breaks.
