Curious as to what some of you think....Latos is by far the best player in the deal...that being said, Reds did give up a lot...if I was a Reds fan I would ask myself.."Why would SD trade this guy?"....I read something that said "maturity issues" with Latos....

It's a huge haul and a gamble on both sides

It is a giant haul for the Padres, the two minor leaguers both rocketed through the Reds system this year and both put up pretty good numbers.

Latos' away split isnt too terrible, only .4 ERA higher on the road and still a very acceptable 3.54. The nice thing is this opens Anthony Rizzo up for a trade, and guess who drafted and traded for him...Epstein, Hoyer and McLeod. This may be why they had Sveum go out there and say that Fielder is not a lock to be a Cubbie, by Friday I am sure that Hoyer and McLeod heard rumblings that the Padres were trying to acquire Alonso.

Question is, why didnt the Reds move Votto?

If the cubs do trade for rizzo, u would think garza will b the first name to pop up, we will get the better end of the trade because pads would have to throw in 2 of their top 10 prospects

From CSN:

"The biggest knock on Latos is that he hasn't shown the kind of durability teams would like to see out of an ace. He's never thrown over 200 innings in a season and has only averaged about six innings per start in the last two seasons."

Dusty will break him by June.
Please don't feed the psychos.

People are tweeting that there could be a 3way trade setup with Garza and Rizzo as main players.\Whatever happens the Cubs better get morethan just a 1B prospect out of it, Because Cubs need pitching.

Latos probably had phantom pains in his elbow upon learning of his trade to the Reds....and I also heard Dr. James Andrews has him penciled in for Tommy John Surgery in August.
