QUESTION: Aside from injury, are there any players you could see on the playoff roster for the NLDS that might change if the Cardinals advanced based on the next opponent?

GOOLD: Sure. The makeup of the bullpen could shift — three lefties to two, as an example. A seven-game series might invite a long reliever being out there — but one who could be used in a different role, too, like they've tried with Helsley or they recently saw with Mayers ... or they didn't try with Ponce de Leon.
