Who Would Be Your Playoff Pitchers?

With Bobby Cox facing a lot of different options for the playoffs, it appears that the decisions will ultimately come down to pitching.

If I were in Bobby's shoes, and for good reason I'm not, I'd go with the following:

Rotation (4)
Tim Hudson
John Smoltz
Off Day
John Thomson
Tim Hudson/Jorge Sosa
Jorge Sosa/Tim Hudson
John Smoltz

Bullpen (6)
Kyle Farnsworth
Blaine Boyer
John Foster
Horacio Ramirez
Chris Reitsma
Kyle Davies

Choosing Reitsma was difficult, but the other options either weren't as good or didn't have enough experience. I'm a big believer in a 10 man staff for the playoffs especially when one of your starters (Smoltz) may not be 100%. I'd love to hear who some of you think will make this squad.
