Francona Announces Rotation, Ryan Merritt Will Not Start a Game

Terry Francona has formulated his rotation for all six potential remaining games.

What may come as a surprise is that there will be no planned “bullpen” days.

Here is the scheduled rotation if the series goes the distance.

Much of this depends on how well Bauer bounces back, but Game 2 on Wednesday night will answer that question mark.

    There are off days you know … so it wouldn’t always be three days rest … For example, Kluber’s start for game 4 is on 4 days rest cus of the off day after Bauers game.

    Wonder if Bauer will get his second over Merritt, now? I still think the ‘unknown quantity’ factor + keeping the defense in the game (in no walks), earned him a start. Bauer looked cold, rusty, and unsure of a plan of attack. Erratic, in other words.
