The Dodgers will open up the postseason at home, and likely will have Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke throwing the first two games of the series at Dodger Stadium. After that, the rotation is a lot iffier, and while they aren’t aces, Alex Wood and Brett Anderson still give the Dodgers a pretty solid chance to stay in the ballgame.

The Mets also have two great starters going at Dodger Stadium in Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard. While their home numbers are much better than their numbers on the road, they still possess the ability to shut down any offense on any given night. Unlike the Dodgers, they do have an ace-type behind their top two guys, as Matt Harvey will start game three in New York unless he just never shows up.

If the Dodgers have their backs against the wall, they would probably use Kershaw on short rest in game four. However, since punting one game of a best-of-five series is usually a bad idea, who should start for the Dodgers in game three?
