Assessing the Reds LF options

How a series of moves may have pigeon-holed the Reds into signing one particular player. Not long after last week's trades of Mat Latos to the Miami Marlins and Alfredo Simon to the Detroit Tigers, a noted local pundit, friend of the blog, ethics purist, friend of scouts, and expert sabermetrician acknowledged that for all the Reds' efforts, they'd brought back four minor leaguers and still had no left fielder. Well, he was half right. While the additions of Anthony DeSclafani, Eugenio Suarez, Jonathon Crawford, and Chad Wallach did wonders to add needed depth to the Reds system, left field...

Cozart for Duda

The Mat Latos and Alfredo Simon trades accomplished several important goals for the organization. The moves shed a combined $12.5 million in projected payroll for 2015. They exchanged two years of team player control (one each for Latos and Simon) for 23 years of team player control. The Reds likely decided that Latos and Simon …

Three damn good years of Mat Latos and the Reds

A look back at the big righthander's time spent in the Queen City. In the days of old when knights were bold and unaccountable pseudonyms ruled this castle, some ill-informed jackhole wondered what the 2012 Cincinnati Reds would look like if they managed to acquire a young San Diego Padres pitcher by the name of Mat Latos. Their offense, however, is and has been pitiful.  Since they picked up Anthony Rizzo in the Adrian Gonzalez trade, they seem to be set with their 1B of the future.  While Nick Hundley has shown glimpses of promise, I'm sure they'd still covet Devin Mesoraco. Mat Latos...
