This shouldn't be that hard. 

 

Maeda(been fantastic this year), Berrios(best stuff of all of them but hasn't been a shutdown type at all during postseason), Pineda(most consistent over the course of a couple years. 

 

Then pitch them again next round. Use Hill if a 4th starter is needed. Put Dobby or Odo in the bullpen to use if any of those guys get knocked out early. Or if you get up big and need to rest your horses.

OK for the balance of the regular season (four games) they start Maeda, then Berríos, then Pineda? The finale would be Bailey or Odorizzi? What happens to Hill? Does he take a trip to St. Paul to throw against the possible replacements? The team does have a chance to win the Central and needs wins to clinch a #4 seed regardless.

I'd go Maeda, Berrios, Pineda, Odorizzi. Hill throws on the side, Bailey doesn't factor into my decision at all.

My guess is that if Sunday's game is meaningful -- can win us the division or home field -- then Hill would start it.

 

Although even if it's not meaningful, I suppose Hill could start for an inning or two as a tune up for a bullpen role during the wild card round. (Could see Odorizzi, Bailey, or even Dobnak follow him, as well as any other relievers who need a tune-up.)
