I'm proud that he's a Red and I hope to meet him at Redsfest so I can thank him for all the good things he brought to the team this year.
Latos has been known to be a very self confident ego driven guy. The self awareness he is presenting here is admirable. A little too late for this season but my hope next year he will come as hardened as they come and dominate. He does need a happy place. If he can't demonstrate self control when the game isn't going his way, he will be a wasted talent. Look at Matt Cain. You can't tell if the guy is have a good day or not.
