    That was a great bunt

    That doesn't sound like an inability to go deep into games to me.
    I'll post it again. 16 of his first 22 starts were less than 7 innings. That's not going deep into games. Recently, he's been going deep. Great. I am HAP HAP HAPPY about that, but it hasn't been that way until recently.

    Thom is such an idiot. Seriously, I can't take him any more. Almost to the point of turning off the radio and following via GameDay.

    Is that what I said? No it isn't, and you know it isn't.

    I suspect the reason his average outing is 6.5 innings is that he is so difficult to hit earlier in games.

    Just a sense that this "problem" has really improved of late. I must say that I can hardly remember the Reds with a better young pitcher than Latos. Not in a very long time.

    Unlike Cueto, also a superb young pitcher, Latos is a big pitcher and from a health/stamina viewpoint hopefully has a very long career ahead of him.

    If there is one player on the Reds I'd like to see signed long term it is Latos.
    It's been Dusty's personal goal to stretch Latos out and get him to try to figure out how to go deeper into games. True for Bailey, too.

    Wow AZ just blew that. Rookie pitcher. Seems a bit wild, threw away a throw to first but AZ still risked the WP with the runner on 3rd.

    Nieves and Votto were both taking their sweet time on that play
