If you take away his two disaster starts (at STL and last night) Latos has a 3.98 ERA over the other 12 starts. Not a world beater but certainly not a disaster that some here want to portray.
Any pitcher will have terrible starts. But, being 24, I'm willing to allow Latos to have these rough patches since the upside to him is huge....certainly bigger than any player we traded him for.
