    I think I want Latos pitching on the west coast above all else. It works just as well to start Cueto/Latos, which is the most logical anyway.

    I agree. Latos did pretty good pitching in southern Cal for a few years. Also has a 1.85 ERA w/ .195 opp AVG in 35 innings. He's the obvious choice.

    I don't mind the new format. As long as the Reds split, they have 3 chances at home to win 2 out of 3. It also guarantees the team with home field advantage clinches in front of the home crowd which is great. Sounds good to me.

    Looking at these projected rotations make me wish that we had a strong left handed starter to balance things out a bit

    Latos has a great history against Giants, in last 3 years, his stats against Giants are

    2.64 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, 58 INN, 45K, 10 BB, .222 BAA


    His numbers in AT&T park are even better:

    1.85 ERA, 0.85 WHIP, 34 INN, 29K, 5 BB, .192 BAA

    Isn't there a day off between games 2 and 3? Why not go for the throat and use your strongest pitchers Cueto,Arroyo, and Latos? And use Homer in middle relief where he did well in the 2010 playoffs.
