Rotation Debation

Now that the Mets are in the World Series (the Mets are in the World Series!!!!!) with 5 days off before Game 1, the question has turned to how the Mets should set their pitching rotation.
A lot of people think they should stick with essentially what it is right now, Harvey-Syndergaard-deGrom.
But I think they should set their best pitchers first, deGrom-Harvey-Syndergaard. I want deGrom to go first because he feel he gives the Mets the best chance to win Game 1. And I do not believe in saving deGrom for a potential Game 7, as that could be a recipe for losing before you even get there.
Also, I would prefer to get Thor his first start at home, just in case there is something to his road troubles.

Of course, the Mets went out on their own, setting a rotation of deGrom, Syndergaard, Harvey, Matz. Not sure why. I definitely trust Harvey more than Thor even though both have been excellent.
Perhaps they really are trying to limit Harvey to one start.
It shouldn't make a huge difference because all three pitchers are so good, but in a close series you can't afford to sacrifice even small edges.
