Six man rotation/ Rest Lee


Today I am driving home and the topic on the local sports radio shows center around the notion that Cliff Lee needs some rest.  Basically, the idea the show was pushing was to move Cliff Lee's next start back a day with the understanding that the Rangers have the division in hand.  My idea to get Cliff Lee and CJ Wilson some rest entering the playoffs is for the Rangers to go with a six man rotation. 

With the rosters expanding to 40 in September why not add Derek Holland to the rotation.  Holland gets more experience in a playoff type atmosphere and Lee, Wilson and the rest of the staff get to work on an extra days rest.  I like the idea of getting Holland some more big league experience and I worry about Wilson's innings adding up even more than I worry about Cliff Lee. 


The dowside I see is there are some off days coming up and I do not want the rotation to lose their sharpness with too much rest.  However the season ends with 14 straight games. 

I want Cliff Lee starting Game 1 of the playoffs.  However, if JD and Wash think Lee could use some rest what do you think about a six man rotation in September?
