    OMG...its been all of 2.5 months exactly what has those we traded done for SD this year so far. Do u know what DC and the Yanks gave up to get thier pitchers? I think if u look they gave up a number of quality young players. Wonder how Yankee fan is handling thier deal...

    Everyone needs to chill out on bashing Latos for christ's sake. The kid is 24. The trade is over and done with and none of the players we traded for him are playing any better than mediocre at the major league level right now. Latos' problem boils down to one issue right now, he is giving up too many home runs. In his 2 full seasons he gave up 16 in 2010 & 2011 each. So far in 2012 he has given up 15 (almost double his previous rate and accounting for the majority of run damage against).

    Latos simply needs to begin hitting the lower half of the strike zone more. In games where he is pitching in the lower half he is filthy. It's OK that he is having his adjustment period now as he will only get better as the season goes on. I'm fully comfortable with him as our #4 starter right now with the capability to get better as we go forward. If everyone wanted to throw a young starter under the bus at 24, Cueto would have been run out of town.

    So you ignored the part about working on a budget? The Yankees have been making horrible moves for years (Kevin Brown, Carl Pavano, etc, etc)

    They can just spend to fix their mistakes

    Get out of my thread, I don't need your trolling
    It ain't trolling if its the truth. Come back with a review of the trade in say 2014 when we will be able to review it with actual real and legit data.

    The Reds budget has increased and the Yanks is not what it once was.

    Actually, i'm glad you responded. The fact you disagree with me means that I'm correct.

    And you know this how? Were you sitting in on Yankee management meetings determining the player budget for 2012?

    One thing that I don't understand about people upset over the Latos trade is that he has been pretty directly responsible for a couple of our wins. Nothing we gave up to get him has done anything significant this season.

    How can this be viewed as a loss right now?
    I see great things in baseball. It's our game.

    Because the pieces used to acquire Latos could have been used to fill in other holes on the team. How hard is this to comprehend?
