Re: Mat Latos
Sometime around the trade deadline I suggested we trade for this guy. I love the idea of him in our rotation. He is a strike out pitcher, is young, and has a bit of a nasty streak. I recall a game in San Diego this year when Johnny Gomes hit a home run off of him he got a bit nasty. I like that in a pitcher, a bit of nastiness would do this rotation some good. As for what I would be willing to give up for him, I would start with Bailey, Heisey, and Grandal and go from there. Or Bailey, Alonso, Grandal, Corcino, and another prospect or two for Latos and Heath Bell... am I crazy?
