Playoff Pitching Rotation Questions
Like this hippo, Skeptical Torto is skeptical this proposal will fly with the Commish...
As I'm preparing myself to face Spencer in the NL playoffs, I came up with a question that I wasn't sure about. Playoff pitching rotations - 4 guys (check), catcher can go gangster (check), but what about long relievers who did indeed start a number of games, but just not the prerequisite 15. These 'long reliever' guys have the endurance rating of a starter, and can be used as a spot starter if needed, BUT can they be inserted into the starting playoff pitching rotation? Commish, can I get a ruling on this? Daniel Hudson is just itching to get a piece of Spencer's squad in the starting role. And surely you'd enjoy rolling out Sweet Strassy Molassy as your #4 starter vs Fish. What say you good sir?
