    One thing for sure, your stater in game #1 will have at least 4 days rest before game 5.

    The only chance you don't go with your #1 starter in game 5 is an injury or you weren't given a chance to set your rotation and your 1st game starter isn't at the front end of your rotation.

    You can platoon Frazier and Ludwick and screw them both up.
    Frazier was hitting even when he was in the platoon earlier in the year. I think it's safe to assume he'll be OK. And it's not like Rolen will be able to play everyday anyhow. They'll find days off for him and Votto and Ludwick as well. Frazier will manage to play two of every three games in some fashion or another.

    It's a nice problem to have--the 3rd base situation. Wish we had the same problem in centerfield.

    I think Drew has been at least capable lately.

    I agree. If things go normally, yeah I'd follow the conventional wisdom. But I'd STILL seriously consider carrying all 5 starters. Who do you replace them with if you don't carry them? We've got nobody of note in AAA really. Leake's got speed and can hit. Bailey or Bronson could be used as long men if need be. Just saying I'd consider it for sure.

    Not to mention...the way these 5 starters have performed this year...they DESERVE to be on the playoff roster.
