"Trust me, I'll think it all out when it's time," Gibson said. "I really will. There's so many numbers to look at -- home and road, ground ball/fly ball, strikeout rates, what kind of lineups you're up against, who holds runners better. There's a lot of different things that I'll think about it. We'll talk it out and go."
But the rotation lined up to have Ian Kennedy go in the first game, and Daniel Hudson in the second game, and Josh Collmenter will go for the third game. If there's a fourth game, Joe Saunders would start, which makes this a great time to reflect on the idea that Joe Saunders might start a postseason game this year, and Dan Haren won't. That's not a sentence you thought you'd read when the trade was made, nor in March of this year.
