    I think Allyson Felix should have a spot :-)

      I disagree. The second leg is said to be the longest. Lyles should run that. He'll cover that 115 faster than any of the other three. I'd have Rogers, to Lyles to Coleman, to Gatlin.

        Isn’t Coleman just about the best starter that we’ve seen? Why not leverage that on lead-off?

          I was disappointed that Baker isn't back into top form. I'd of rather had him in there instead of Rogers.

            Coleman (the starter - can handle turn) 10.1
            Rodgers (holds speed well - veteran) 9.0
            Gatlin (he runs a great curve) 9.1
            Lyles (natch) 8.7

            = 36.9

              But, you run your biggest new entertainer, Noah Lyles, in the star anchor role.
              That's why Bolt anchored, as he should have.
              I also like Gatlin between Rodgers and Coleman because of the chemistry they have.
              Until further notice, Lyles is the Anchorman!
              (Hope he comes up with better dance material, I know a choreographer that could help!)
              I think if it comes down to those four (and it probably will) there are some interchangeable parts between those 2-4 legs (maybe more so than in other years) with Rodgers as the leadoff and others in various combinations. That said I, too, would go with the order you propose.

                Too bad you can't figure how to get Leeper on the anchor leg...with a flying start he probably could do 8.0...

                  He ran 44 with a slow first 100....so obviously he can do faster than 11...

                  From the video I had him under 32.0 for the last 300...once he gets going he can fly on the straightaway..

                    2 rules for our relayists

                    Relaying 101:

                    1. pass the baton in the zone

                    2. do not drop the baton

                      But to really get going he needs more distance than he's going to get in the acceleration zone.

                        Rodgers-Gatlin-Lyles-Coleman

                        Have Lyles run the curve.

                          My sentiments exactly.

                            I am not comfortable with Coleman on the anchor. If for some reason the U.S. is behind after the last exchange, can Coleman run down anyone like Lyles can?

                              ?!
                              With the lead Lyles gives him, that won't be necessary.
