Yep, most 24 year olds still have some growing up to do. I imagine it's even harder when you are a major leaguer.
I'll be interested to see what kind of start Latos gets off to this year. He's known for having a horrible first 4 weeks.. I wonder if he'll start strong this year.. The Reds made some adjustments to him last year.. They told him to stop using one of his pitches (which was mediocre and getting hit hard), then Matt took off. Hopefully he carries over the success to April 2013. It would be great to get off to a good start.
But as far as the original question, I consider Latos an ace now. Cueto too.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
