    Latos instantly becomes the Reds best pitcher. Depending on who else goes, it is a good deal for the Reds if we are going for it in '12 and '13.

    Latos just turned 24 and is not arbitration eligible yet.

    Cueto is still the ace still to me... until Latos can prove he can pitch in gabp instead of big petco, then maybe I'll entertain notions he is better than Cueto
    Go Redlegs!!

    Cueto's barely a number 2 with his K numbers.

    I love Cueto, but he's due for regression. Latos is a true TOP pitcher no matter what ballpark he is in.

    Re: Reds acquire Latos

    From a matchup standpoint (using STL as example),
    Cueto-Latos vs Carpenter-Wainright sounds alot better than Cueto-Leake. I like Leake but I thought the Reds needed to do something to push him to a number 3 where prior to this, he was Probably our 2.
    Super deal and maybe another move or two to come.

    Obviously you don't know much about pitching. A guy can be a #1 without significant stikeout #'s, (IE Tommy John in his prime) ESPECIALLY in GABP

    For what it's worth, over the course of his career, Latos has given up fewer homeruns on the road than at home. The difference is slight (.83HR/9 vs. .81HR/9), but to me, that's an indication that pitching away from Petco shouldn't be too harmful.

    Latos career ERA is 2.96 on the road. 3.20 at Petco. So everyone who is trying to make the case for him only being good because of Petco is wrong.

    I am excited about this deal, we begged Walt for a deal, so now that he made one, why not look at the glass half full?
