Even Dillon Gee is skeptical about this idea.

"Here it is. The plan you keep asking about." Alderson began.  "I have repeatedly told you that we will not compromise the future for the present. And I mean it. My baseball people say that players should have innings limits so they can ease their way into more wear and tear. By dedicating the young guys' innings to meaningful September baseball, we can let the AAA staff bear the brunt of playoff baseball." Alderson stated. 

Alderson went on to describe his vision for the 1 game playoff and short series:

"One game playoff, all the marbles, no question Dillon Gee is our guy. We anticipate Bartolo will be tired and Niese injured. With Dillon up front, we can start game 2 with 2 innings from matz, followed by a now rested Alex Torres. Lest you forget the Mets' roster for the NLCS in 2006 that was so close to doing it all, we figure we will remind you by resigning that rotation for the playoffs. 

Rotation:
1. Dillon Gee
2. Matz/Alex Torres
3. Tom Glavine
4. John Maine
5. El Duque Oliver Perez
