Post Why Not a Six-Man Rotation?

Sale
Peavy
Danks
Quintana
Axelrod
Santiago

From what I've read, the cons of a 6-man rotation seem to be:
a. don't let your ace pitch so often;
b. mess with your bullpen;and,
c. weaken your bench.

But given the current situation with the Sox;
a. Sale might benefit from more rest (he just missed a start);
b. our bull pen is already unsettled;
c. well, you know all about our bench.

In addition, wouldn't Peavy and Danks benefit from some extra rest? I'm not a baseball expert like some other posters here, so I'm asking an honest question. I'd appreciate hearing the thoughts of others.
