Gaudin Should Be Starting Game 5
Fact: AJ Burnett is much better at home.
Fact: Cliff Lee is pitching tonight and if the Yankkees can't muster anything against him, you waste Burnett.
Fact: Burnett would be on regular rest in Game 6.
Fact: This forces Pettitte to pitch on short rest.
I think Girardi is overplaying his hand here. We'll see.
