    Latos has now started 38 games as a Red ...

    ... and has only four losses. That trade is working out pretty well.

    Pitchers wins and losses mean basically nothing to me, but I'll admit that is pretty cool.

    OTOH, Edinson Volquez' team is 14-18 when he pitches and has walked 115 batters in 36 starts. Quite a difference. This year, he's 0-3 with the team being 0-4 and he has an 8.84 ERA (I know--small sample size). It's fairly easy to see that this was a tremendous trade for Walt Jockety!

    Agreed! Along with several other moves he's made to build this team.

    Meanwhile Grandal sits out 50 games and Boxberger 2 years later still likely wouldnt be in our bullpen.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    If April is his bad month, the N.L. is in for a lot of trouble in 2013.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Same for Homer too. They're both throwing up ace numbers in April and historically get stronger as the year goes on.

    Before the season started I picked Mat Latos to win the NL Cy Young award. So far, he's pitched like one. The wins aren't there, but that's because of poor luck. No offense is two starts, bad defense in one, and two blown saves in the other two. But his W/L record isn't what matters - he's been dominant in all other categories: 2.16 ERA, 2.65 FIP, 8.91 K/9, 1.35 BB/9. What an acquisition he was by Walt and the Reds. He reminds me so much of Curt Schilling. Hopefully the next step is signing him to a long term contract.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    At the time of the trade, there were only a handful of pitchers I would have preferred over Latos. He's an amazing combination of talent, age, and salary.

    Might be one of the best two way trades ever made...

    And 2 of them came in his first 3 starts with the Reds, where he has admitted he was trying too hard to impress the fans and Reds management after the big trade.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    when he doesn't lose his cool you could argue he's our best pitcher.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.
