Breaking Down the SF Giants' Ideal Starting Rotation for the Playoffs

Zachary D. Rymer@zachrymerMLB Lead WriterSeptember 28, 2012

The San Francisco Giants rode their pitching to a World Series victory in 2010, and they’ll be looking to do the same this year after clinching the NL West for the second time in three years.

With the postseason still a little over a week away from getting started, the question now is how Bruce Bochy should line up his starting rotation. It’s not going to be as easy this year as it was back in 2010.

Should Matt Cain or Madison Bumgarner start Game 1? Can Tim Lincecum be trusted to start Game 3? Who’s the safer option between Ryan Vogelsong and Barry Zito?

B/R pop culture lead writer Gabe Zaldivar and I took a shot at answering these questions. As they usually are, our ramblings were caught on video.
