    This is about as bad a start as could have been imagined.

    That said, it's just 2 runs and Latos just got the DP.

    This game/start aside, agree Latos is an excellent pitcher but no ace.

    Hell of a play by BP. Alright Latos will settle in. Let's go.

    Inning over. 2-1 Bucs. Could have been a lot worse.

"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."

    IMO, now is not the best of times to change routines. I liked having our best 3 for this game...but I would've arranged it earlier.

    I wonder if Latos has ever given up 2 home runs on 2 straight pitches before.

    An "ace" is a fighter pilot with five confirmed kills.
