    Re: The playoff rotation is just plain idiotic!

    For those of you wanting a three man rotation, have you seen the record of guys in the playoffs who pitch on short rest (game 1 starter would be back on short rest in game 4, game 2 starter same in game 5)? Let me give you a hint, it isn't pretty. Going with a four man rotation makes a lot more sense.

    Why would we go with a 3 man rotation when we have the depth to go with 4? Talking about idiotic...

    In case you are keeping score at home:

    Bronson "should be dropped from the roster" Arroyo and Homer "can't pitch at GABP" Bailey have combined for 14 innnings of one-run, two-hit baseball.

    This playoff rotation has been just plain unhittable.

    I never had a problem with the rotation but now it has a whole new mess to deal with. Gotta go with Leake tonight.

    Leake was excellent his last time out. Let's hope he can reprise that effort.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    RedTruck should be left off the Sun Deck roster as far as I'm concerned.

    This is how it should be:

    Game 1: Latos (AKA The Giants Killer, 2-0 with 0.56 ERA this year).

    You need that Game 1. It sets the tone for the entire series. Latos has OWNED the Giants throughout his entire career. Setting him up for Game 1 would've allowed him to pitch a potential Game 5 in Cincinnati.

    Game 2: Homer Bailey

    9-2 with a 2.45 Road ERA. He is scheduled to pitch (if necessary) Game 4 at HOME, where he is sporting an ERA in the mid 5's. Make's much sense.

    Game 3: Johnny Cueto

    10-3 with a 2.79 ERA at Home.

    Pitching at GABP can be tricky at times. If anyone has mastered to pitch at GABP is Mr. Cueto.

    Arroyo should be left off the roster as far as i'm concerned.
    RedTruck's new logic...
    "Well... if Dusty woulda listened to me, Cueto wouldn't have been hurt annd we probly woulda swept by now!"

    It looks like he left himself off the roster. His original post is his only post in this thread.
