Post Season Strategy

Ducksnorts has a good breakdown of the playoff roster. Bochy has stated that he's likely to go with 11 pitchers. Odd position man out will be either Ben Johnson or Sean Burroughs. My prediction is that we'll see Sean Burroughs on the post season roster instead of Ben. Ben may be more versatile, but Sean's more lovable.

For the rotation, I like going with Peavy and Astacio. Eaton for that third spot would seem like the most logical choice. With 11 pitchers, everybody's on a short leash. Remember, people. Smallball in the post season. Better to shut them down over nine innings than hope you can play catchup.

More thoughts throughout the day.
