    Wow. Hope a of is coming back too.
    Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Curious to hear the details. But, initially excited to add an arm like Latos.

    Said this was plausible. If Headley's in the deal, it's hard to argue with the haul.

    My guess is Grandal is gone too.

    Love it. Take a risk. Latos and Cueto at the top of the rotation? I'll take it.

    Mat Latos is the kind of guy you target. He is a difference maker. Still want to see what else we traded, but this is the guy you want to make a deal for.

    And he'll be under our control for quite some time.

    The devil will be in the details. A good trade if Alonso is the main piece heading to San Diego.

    Wonder now if there is a chance to sign Beltran to play lf.

    Love Latos, although he has maturity issues from what I remember and if he stays calm on the mound (a big if) he dominates.

    Always liked Alonso and really sad he's gone, although we all knew he'd be traded from the day he was drafted. There have questions about his power, but I think we all know his power will just be average now in Petco, but he's going to be a doubles MACHINE out there.

    From Padres forum, who knows how credible: http://forums.signonsandiego.com/sho...d.php?t=116336

    In addition to Alonso, it will be Grandal, Boxberger, and much maligned starter Edinson Volquez, per source.
    If true, pretty steep price.
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......
