Now, it’s time to put yourself in the role of Ned Yost. We have reviewed the candidates for the fourth starter come playoff time, and now it is time to make the decision of who will get the ball for that start.
As we have detailed, all of the candidates have potential flaws. Medlen’s elbow may not be able to hold up, and resting him may be best for the future. Guthrie is Guthrie, and Duffy has not exactly been effective this season. Young has not started a game since July 28th.
So, who would you choose to take the ball for Game Four of a postseason series for the Kansas City Royals? Let us know by voting in the poll below!
