-- The Angels have clinched and they are slowing their starters down now, can we trust them in crunch time?
-- It is like this with all teams this time of year? Some teams have six-man rotations (Angels, Pirates), some have four-man rotations (Mets). It is a case-by-case basis.

-- And about closers ... Chris Carpenter is now closing games for the Cardinals, do we trust him at this point?
