Latos? I didn't see it, can't argue, but he's a pretty good pitcher and I wouldn't remove him on a whim.
Xavier Paul? Who should he have hit, Cairo? If so, the board would have gone nuts. Not Cairo!
Valdez in CF? Maybe he wants a guy who can play CF instead of someone who can't.
I read the scores and I see 16-7 at home against. In particular, I see 7 runs in three games. All too familiar for this team with it's inconsistent offense.
I'm with you there- did Hanigan strike out looking? I thought he must have missed a sign because it's hard to believe a guy is going to leave the runners hanging like that.
Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.
