Phillies – Dodgers Rotations Set for NLCS

7 10 2008

By Mike Gill

The Phillies and the Dodgers have set their pitchign rotations for the Best-of-Seven NLCS – not much of a surprise.

Will King Cole take the ball in Game 7 ?

Will King Cole take the ball in Game 7 ?

Game 1 at Citizens Bank Park:
Cole Hamels vs. Derek Lowe.

Game 2 at Citizens Bank Park:
Brett Myers vs. Chad Billingsley.

Game 3 at Dodger Stadium:
Jamie Moyer vs. Hiroki Kuroda.

Game 4 at Dodger Stadium:
Joe Blanton vs. Clayton Kershaw or Greg Maddux.

Keep in mind, this means if the series goes seven games, then Hamels probably wouldn’t pitch, unless he decides to go on three days rest.  If Hamels goes game one, then he would only pitch twice in the series.  If Myers goes in game one, he would probably go on three days rest and pitch game seven. 

So, should the Phils set up their rotation to go:

Thurs. 10/9 – Game 1 in Philadelphia – LHP Cole Hamels

Fri., 10/10 – Game 2 in Philadelphia – RHP Brett Myers

Sat., 10/11 – OFF DAY

Sun. 10/12 – Game 3 in Los Angeles – LHP Jamie Moyer

Mon. 10/13 – Game 4 in Los Angeles – RHP Joe Blanton

Tue. 10/14 – OFF DAY

Wed. 10/15 – Game 5 in Los Angeles – LHP Cole Hamels

Thu. 10/16 – OFF DAY

Fri. 10/17 – Game 6 in Philadelphia – RHP Brett Myers

Sat. 10/18 – Game 7 in Philadelphia – LHP Jamie Moyer

or

Larry Bowa said yesterday that Derrick Lowe will most likely pitch game 4 on 3 days rest.

The Phils have said Blanton will definitely pitch game 4. Hope he matches his game 4 performance of the Brewer series.

I like Lowe….I wish Hamles could pitch on 3 days rest though
