    Re: Reds acquire Latos

    I'm super excited about 2012. Cueto, Latos, Leake, Arroyo and Wood or Bailey. This could be the best staff in baseball. Don't like trading the future, but man I'd take a WS this year.
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    Agreed. Alonso and Grandal are going to be two of the best young bats in the league before long. It's going to absolutely SUCK to watch them produce, especially Grandal.

    Walt's lost his touch, game's passed him by.

    I guess he figured he had to empty the cupboard to get rotation help, so he did.

    Horrible trade, IMO.

    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?
    AT&T and Dodger Stadium are both very friendly stadiums as well.

    Because it a stupid deal. A horrid decision.

    The Padres just made a laughingstock out of our entire organization.

    The last starter they got from us that we though was no good was Harang. Volquez will win big for them......they get their future closer & maybe rookie of year candidate in Boxberger...add a switch hitting Jorge Posada type player and add a bona fide first base power source.

    Maybe the most one sided trade I have ever seen.

    Pathetic.

    In 2 years...we will look like absolute fools.

    The Reds just blew it. Jockerty has shown us that he is nothing more than a has been & the game has passed him by.

    Just a horrid trade.

    One injury from Latos away from us giving them half a team for absolutely nothing.

    Among the worst trades in baseball history when all is said and done. This one will end up being one they write about in 20 years.

    A joke.

    Uh... what about a 2.83 ERA in no decisions?

    As well for his career, in 33 of his 72 starts he's been given a run support of 2 or less.

    Maybe the most uninformed ridiculous comments in history.

    Latos is a solid young pitcher, but this deal just sucks.

    Re: Reds acquire Latos

    Giving up Grandal upsets me the most. He is a Ted Simmons prototype player (Catcher).

    Grandal, 23, hit .305 with 31 doubles and 14 home runs in 105 games last season, his first at the professional level, at three different Minor League stops. He is a switch-hitting catcher and was drafted by the Reds in the first round of the 2010 Draft.

    Here is a comment on MLB.com: (Don't think he or she realized the other players received.)

    " Screwed up on this one Padres. Trade a pitcher whose going to give you 200+ innings a year for a starter whose injury prone and one that I'm sure you're giving a 1-year deal too as well right? Way to go to the new Padres front office schmucks. "

    1. Step back from the ledge.

    2. Quit drinking the Kool-Aid.

    3. Lighten up Francis.

    4. The sun will rise tomorrow and the world isn't going to end on December 21, 2012.

    5. The Reds just made a serious case for contending not only for the division, but the NL Pennant as well.

    Anyone know where I could see Latos' home/road splits?

    That ballpark made Aaron Harang look like an All Star.
