Because we're up 2-1 and have a fresher pen(relative to the Dodgers)I think you throw out the Ross/Lopez tag team and hope to win a wild one with tons of pitching changes.



i totally agree

3 days = throw day.

If he throws game 5, we might get to the NLCS. If he doesn't...?
. Today would be throw day right?  3 days rest is only 1 day shorter than normal 4 day rest.  Mad should be ready especially with less than normal workload his last 2 starts.  Same with Roarke for game 5

Given the bullpen is pretty much maxed out, yeah, you are going to need at least 7 from those two.  Perez, Trienen and Scrabble are the only guys who won't be exhausted.

Maybe Melancon for the 9th, if the Nats have a lead.

Kelley should be fine also. 1 appearance in the past week and change.

Let's take the political bullcrap to the appropriate thread.

JCA says he's taking a day off for Yom Kippur and people are already posting out of order. :hysterical:
