    I don't have a problem with it. I had a feeling it'd be Arroyo or Bailey for game 2 because Latos can handle pitching in our small park. When he's on it doesn't matter where the game is at.

    it kinda does not matter. if he's pitching game 2 he's still only pitching once. I knew Cueto would pitch game 1.

    I like it. I think Latos is better but I trust Bronson also.

    Also im not pitching our 4th best pitcher 1/2 to make him happy.

    I also think we will win series one even with this planned rotation, but I think Latos should be in the #1 spot hands down. I want him going twice in the opening series if a game 5 is necessary.

    If one of those guys are going to start in game 2 it should be Homer.

    ERA/WHIP/BAA on Road
    3.49/1.07/.242 for Arroyo
    2.63/1.09/.228 for Bailey

    I'm sorry, but Cueto has earned his status as the ace of this team's rotation. He starts game one, period.

    Given that we'll be on the road and probably facing SF's ace in game one, I pick my game two starter based on the notion that we could be down in the series and need to salvage a split. That requires a guy who's not going wilt under the pressure. If you look through history, Pettite has always been that guy for the Yankees.

    If I'm the Reds, I don't think I trust Homer in that spot. I'd be perfectly fine with Latos in that spot, but Arroyo works too. If the combo of Cueto and Arroyo earn you a split, then you have to feel good about your chances at home with Cueto and Latos slated for two of the games. And you can feel decent about Bailey knowing that if he gives you at leat five decent innings, you'll have that bullpen waiting in the wings at the first sign of trouble

    I think I would have to go with Latos game one because of his success vs. the Giants, and he's been the Reds' best pitcher lately. I acknowledge Cueto earning his #1 status, but I have to go with the "hot hand".

    I sort of tend to agree. Thought it would be Bailey over Arroyo, but the order of Cueto and Latos doesn't surprise me. I like it, in fact.

    Regarding Arroyo over Bailey, though, Bronson does have some deep post-season experience from his Boston days and did well for us in 2010, in spite of the team getting swept. So I won't split hairs.

    Spot on. And the fact that Cueto has been cold lately. Poor decision, end of story. Probably will not cost us though, as i expect Johnny to rise to the occasion.

    Looks like the thought police did not approve of my original post.

    They don't understand the difference between calling an idea moronic and calling a person a moron.

    Very sad state of affairs IMO.

    Hard call.

    - Bronson in big park of San Francisco is probably preferable to Bronson at GABP compared to Latos's stuff looks better at home.
    - The biggest decision is Game 4...Bailey at GABP is really worse vs. on the road.
