Six Man Rotation for Red Sox

Will the Red Sox go to a 6-man rotation next year? According to this very well written article - it is a very real possibility.

One of the keys to the Red Sox victory in the postseason this year was the fact that their starters were fresh. The Cleveland Indians dynamic duo of CC Sabathia and Fausto Carmona seemed worn down and were not effective versus the potent Red Sox lineup. I personally think you can trace that back to Sabathia leading all of baseball in innings pitched and Carmona being asked to throw 141 more innings this year than he did the year before.

Read the link - the 6-man rotation seems to have the Curt Schilling stamp of approval.
