I also think the Schilling comp is an excellent one.

What a gutsy performance that was by Latos. I loved the trade when it was made and obviously still do. I love his attitude. He wanted the ball immediately after Cueto left the game. Like someone else said, he didn't have anywhere near his best stuff but he went out there and threw 4 innings of 1 run ball on three days rest and helped save the bullpen. I love the comparison to Curt Schilling.
I miss Adam Dunn.

Hey Sparky! Indian Hill English teachers taught me everything I know!
