SUNNY GRAY vs BARTOLO COLON To Start Game Five?
So, they don't reverse the homerun call...Perhaps the biggest question now is whether to start for Bartolo Colon or SOnny Gray. I would say to go ahead and stick with Colon, who has been 'the man' all season, with consistency. Just because he had a hickup in the first inning of the first playoff game, just make sure he gets a lot of warm up pitches and have Sunny Gray available and ready to come in at any time. Plus, there's no assurance Sunny Gray could repeat his shutout performance of Game Two, again; Colon has the track record that Gray doesn't have. So, it's like you have two chances that way. Theres no in this first playoff series if the A's lose and you don't have to worry so much about the upcoming starter as there will be several day break before the next series would begin.
