I think its fair o criticize Latos a bit... It's a situation where giving up a few runs could have been manageable, but giving up 6 was a death sentence. Big game pitchers find a way to minimize the damage there. Latos is 23, has great stuff, and wasn't one bit afraid to take the ball in game one or today in game five. I think he has the goods to someday be the big game stopper... He just isn't quite there yet obviously.

I do think Latos has a few immaturity issues to get past, but as a pitcher I gained a ton if respect for him down the stretch this year and in game one of the series. I'm glad he's a Red.
