I don't have a problem with how the doctors handled Latos, I do have a problem with how the Reds handled Latos. They were overly cautious with him, in my opinion. I honestly believe that if they were more aggressive with him off the knee surgery, he's be fine by now. At the very least, he wouldn't be worse off than he is now.

Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.
The problem isn't the doctor. The problem is all the happy talk in the media about injured players leading ultimately to disappointment.
It's probably not just the Reds. I don't listen anymore when teams say two weeks, or four weeks or six weeks or whatever. I take it all as spin.
