Re: Mat Latos needs to get his head on straight.
It was bad...but he's a young guy. He'll learn from this, I hope, and that's the most important thing. Like I said in the game thread, those pitches that he lost his cool about weren't totally egregious miscalls. They were borderline at best. That's my biggest problem with the whole thing. Losing your cool is one thing...but losing your cool when it's not really even justified to the point where the whole inning becomes a trainwreck is something else. But this could make him a better pitcher in the long run...if he can learn to harness that raw emotion it can be a very powerful tool. He's got Cy Young talent. Now he just needs a Cy Young head.
But man, it really sucks right now. I hate that we're having this conversation.
