What you talking about Willis?!  LANNAN will help us win in the playoffs!  Problems have been starting AFTER you take him out.  Same with Det last night.  We need to give our starters more innings!

You can't be concerned with the 5th/6th starter at this point, and he's an obvious non-tender candidate with no options left. I wish him well, he's a hell of a good guy.

Lol coming from you...he's won some huge games for us.

Admit he's a stud.

Seriously, we will go with a 4 man rotation in the playoffs.  The only way Lannan starts in the playoffs is if Davey thinks there is an advantage to slipping Det into the bullpen as the go-to shut down guy in the middle innings.  That is a remote possibility but mimght be the cagey thing to do. 

Lannan will have a problem making the roster  in the playoffs.  He'd basically have to move ahead of Gorz and Duke as the long releif lefty.  The other two have been effective in that role, while Lannan really has not pitched relief.

Assuming a 4 man rotation of Gio, JZ, Det, and Jackson (righties 1 & 3 if vs. St Louis, lefties 1 & 3 if vs. ATL), we will go with a 7 or 8 man bullpen.  Righties will be Storen, Clippard, Mattheus, Stammen, and probably Garcia.  Lefties will Burnett, M. Gonzalez, and one of Gorz / Duke / Lannan.   Lannan might not be the best option.   The cagey way to  play it, were we to face ATL, might be to have Lannan start game 3, Det in the bullpen as a 4th lefty and drop Mattheus.  that lets you use M. gonzalez as a LOOGY.

  I'm sure the sawks will cruise through this year's playoffs on their way to a 9th straight WS title. The rest of us should just start looking forward to the day when pitchers and catchers report in 2013.
