Wild Card Game Starting SS?

Given Hurdle's infatuation with small samplpe sizes, maybe Mercer's big day on Sunday gets him the start on Tuesday.

Personally, I'm torn. Really torn. If It was Latos starting, I think I'd be more "ok" with Barmes getting the start. But runs are going to be at a premium with Cuteo on the bump. But does that mean you go with the guy who is more likely to save more runs, or the guy more likely to produce more runs?

I hope its Mercer, but i'd say Barmes is the heavy favorite to get the nod, and I totally get the reasoning. Still, I'd be really happy if we find out that Mercer is going to be the starter on Tuesday.

Although....I dont hate having Mercer ready to use v. Chapman in the 9th either if it comes to that. But I guess he'd be more than likely batting for Barmes in that situation anyway, with Gaby or Tabata batting for the pitcher's spot, etc.
