Let’s go under the assumption all will be well with Pedro Martinez and Orlando Hernandez’s foot problems heal.
That leaves the fourth starter in the playoffs between John Maine and Oliver Perez.
Both have been erratic in the second half, but have shown signs of turning it around.
My guess has Perez in the bullpen. I know there’s the wildness factor, but he’s also a high-strikeout guy who can be dominant for an inning. I think that will be a determining factor.
Like I said, it’s a guess, but he can make it a moot point if he pitches lights out the rest of the way.
