With a large chunk of Beerleager already looking for the nearest bridge, it seems like a good time to pile on a bit.
Let's say the Phillies lose Game 3. It's certainly a possible scenario given, among other reasons, Jaime Garcia's domination of the Phils in the past. So, the scenario comes up seemingly every year. If the Phillies are trailing 2-1 in the series, do you go with Roy Halladay in Game 4?
Some of the factors are that Doc has pitched on three days' rest, but not since he was with Toronto. (Unless I'm forgetting a short-rest start with the Phils). The Phillies' fourth starter, Roy Oswalt, has generally pitched pretty well over the last month, including seven scoreless innings against St. Louis on Sept. 17. And he's obviously well established as a postseason pitcher. And the other big factor - maybe the biggest one - is that Cliff Lee would be able to pitch Game 5 on regular rest. So, as opposed to other scenarios from previous seasons, you'd only need to pitch one ace on short rest.
It's a little hard to imagine Loyal Chuck not starting Oswalt in Game 4 in either scenario, but it's a discussion worth having before, ya know, the line down the Ben Franklin Bridge gets longer and longer.
