It’s basically as expected. The Braves haven’t decided on their game 2 and three starters yet, and that’s because they have some options. Tim Hudson can go on Friday on normal rest, but that would result in Tommy Hanson going on Sunday on super long rest. They might decide it would be best to give additional rest to both Hudson and Hanson going into their starts. The long lay-off between the end of the season and the first playoff game leaves everything wide open.
Tim Lincecum, of course, will be taking the mound for the Giants in game one.
