Where does CC Sabathia rank?

Who are the best big-game pitchers in the playoffs, SportsNation?

After the marathon that is baseball's regular season, eight teams are in the starting blocks for the sprint to the World Series title. And to finish first, a team almost certainly needs at least one starting pitcher it can give the ball to in a must-win game and trust he'll get the job done.

So, as October baseball takes the stage, which pitchers would you trust most in a must-win start? Will Chris Carpenter's regular-season brilliance translate to the postseason? Does Pedro Martinez have some magic left in his arm? Rank this year's top arms.
