Plenty of people around here trumpeted the fact that Latos has a propensity to stink in the first month of the season....but we're 1/3 of the way through, month 3, and he's still just a very average pitcher. Meanwhile, we're left with a depleted farm system and his contract as opposed to Edinson's. Disaster.
Yes, Latos was brought in here to be the number 2 guy. He is not filling that role. It is up to Bailey now, hopefully with the summer weather, he goes on a tear.
