I'm really surprised Dusty made this decision so early. His rationale: "You want to go hard, soft," Baker said. "You want to break up Volqie and Cueto. You don’t want them to try to out radar-gun each other. Whoever the fifth starter is going to be — other than Homer (Bailey) — is going to be softer. If Bronson is No. 1, you’ve got two softer guys back-to-back." He started game 1 of the playoffs last year, as we all remember, so it seems the Reds are really confident in him. Also, it looks like ben nevis posted this an hour earlier, but nobody reads FanShots.
