Doesn't Verlander start the first playoff game regardless of what happens Sunday? Is Hinch going to move Cole ahead of Verlander in the playoff rotation?

That's what it sounded like to me...And it's not moving guys around, it's sticking with the rotation.  Cole would go Game 1 and possibly Game 5 of the ALDS, and Verlander would go Game 2 of the ALDS and open the ALCS, if they made that far.  Whoever opens the ALDS likely will not open the ALCS. One will be Verlander and one will be Cole.  Decide who you want where.  Of course, I could be wrong.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

You could be, but (at least in this case) I doubt you are.

The ALDS game 1's are going to be on Friday Oct 4. So having Verlander going game 1 would be on normal rest. They could go with Cole in game 1 then Verlander game 2 with both being on 5 days rest or Verlander on normal rest and Cole on 6 days rest

That's only if Cole pitches Sunday. If he doesn't, he's on 10 or 11 days off, which seems risky to me. I would think you'd have Cole pitch Sunday no matter what, just to keep things normal for him. But that's not what I read.  We'll see what Hinch and Strom have in mind. The bigger question is the fourth starter and whether or not Miley earns a spot.

I had Verlander and Cole flipped in my head for some reason. I bet they have Cole pitch but only 5 innings at the most on Sunday.

If its Verlander and Cole in the first round they will both be going on five days rest. If its Cole and Verlander, Cole will be going on regular rest and Verlander on six days.

If its Verlander and Cole in the first round and it goes three or four games, then it can be Verlander and Cole in the second round. If the first round goes five games, then Cole starts the second round and Verlander gets the second game if the interval gives him four days rest.

I think JV starts #1 regardless.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

Here's Hinch talking about playing time this week:  https://twitter.com/brianmctaggart/status/1176652896810569728
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Last night's action gives the Astros a 1.5 game lead on the Yankees. Magic number for best record is 4.

CFM goes for the Rays today.

AL WC is tight:
Oak is a half game up on the Rays who lead Cle by a half game.

NL WC is just about set.   Was clinched a spot last night; Mil is 5 up on the steM and FTC.  Mil is 1 game back of the Nats to host the WC game.

Magic number for best record is 4.

4 for sole best record, 3 for home field advantage, against both the Yankees and Dodgers. The Astros’ win last night clinched them a better intradivision record than the Dodgers, so the Astros own the tiebreakers over both teams.

Choi is one those guys that may not have big numbers, but it is uncanny how often he delivers when they need him.  I hate it when the Astros play the Rays, I would hate it even more if it were to happen in the postseason.

D-Backs take down the Cards, while the Brewers are in the process of mauling the Reds. Suddenly the NL Central is a lot more up in the air.

Finished w/ 100-pitches in 6 innings, 1 hit, 2 BB, 9 K;s and a 3-0 lead..
Rays still batting in 7th w/ 2 on and the 3rd run having scored.
Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.
