Buckeyes up 56-31, for those who care.
Latos may have just become my favorite player on this team.

Good to have Posey the lead off man next inning. Latos did well to get by that last inning.
FWIW, I wouldn't be so quick to pull Mat. He's going pretty well, he doesn't have a lot of pitches, I'd leave him in there for another two innings, maybe even three.
I think Dusty intends to pull Latos after one more inning, I wouldn't unless he's in trouble.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
George Kontos in to pitch
