Cincinnati Reds roster breakdown

Who's in, who's out, who's Skip Schumaker. The Cincinnati Reds are no doubt in the midst of a major roster overhaul, one dating back to last year's Winter Meetings when both of Mat Latos and Alfredo Simon were traded to the Miami Marlins and Detroit Tigers, respectively.  The biggest roster decisions facing the Reds at that point were the contracts of those two pitchers as well as those of Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake, since all four were entering their final year under contract and the team was set to face a pile of tough contract decisions. Well, that sure as heck isn't the case any...
Angels Notes: Team stays alive even with threadbare bullpen

Angels Notes: Team stays alive even with threadbare bullpen

ARLINGTON, Texas - So gassed was the Angels bullpen Saturday that they resorted to using two pitchers who a week ago were not even on the roster. Mat Latos had been released by the Dodgers before the Angels signed him out of desperation, looking for...

Angels sign Mat Latos for final week

ANAHEIM -- The Angels have signed veteran right-hander Mat Latos to help them in their push for the playoffs in the final week of the regular season. Latos would not be eligible for the postseason if the Angels make it, but they are desperaate for...

The Cardinal way

It’s not much of a secret that Anthony DeSclafani has out-pitched Mat Latos this year – by a lot. The two pitchers were traded for each other in the offseason. In fact, only one of the two has a job. What most observers don’t realize is that since the Reds-Royals deadline trade, John Lamb has out-pitched …

See Ya', Latos

Mat Latos will not get a chance to lose any more games for the Dodgers this year. LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers shuffled their pitching staff on Thursday, reinstating Carlos Frias from the disabled list and designating Mat Latos for assignment. Frias has not pitched in the Majors since June 30 and had been on the DL with right-lower-back tightness. The right-hander was 5-5 with a 4.39 ERA in 14 appearances (12 starts) with the Dodgers before being injured. He worked 13 1/3 innings over seven Minor League rehab appearances, the most recent coming on Sept. 6. Latos was 0-3 with a 6.66 ERA in...

Giants fall behind, storm back, fall behind, storm back, fall behind, lose in wild extra-innings game

The Dodgers lost in 16 innings because Mat Latos isn't good anymore. If that makes you feel better. In the eighth inning of a close September game, with the tying run on first base, against the hardest-throwing pitcher in major league history, the Giants used a pitcher to pinch-hit. Forget whatever you think you know about Madison Bumgarner's silver bat, forget how excellent he's been this season. He's still a pitcher. It's September. The benches should be overflowing with rookies and old friends, all eager to get an at-bat in that situation. The Giants, bruised and emaciated, don't even...

Post-Game 139 Thread: It's All Mat Latos' Fault

Post-Game 139 Thread: It's All Mat Latos' Fault

ANGELS 3, DODGERS 2 Last outing, Mat Latos complained about being pulled early in yet another ineffective start in his Dodger career. This time, Latos didn't even make it to the mound for game time, complaining of a stiff neck. And he's probably also complaining about being pulled from the starting lineup early, knowing Latos, who then watched us fall 3-2 to the Angels. Losing our first game out of nine to the Angels shouldn't be all that bad, so I suppose I won't pull a Latos and complain about things, such as understudy Joe Wieland lasting a Latos-like four innings and giving up two...

DUAL Game 139 Thread: Sept. 9 @ Angels, 7p

DUAL Game 139 Thread: Sept. 9 @ Angels, 7p

In a SoSG first, here's our first DUAL-GT. Dusty and I both worked on GTs independently, and queued them up at the same time. YOU make the call on which one you like more (and on which one you are commenting)! First, Dusty's GT: Mat Latos (4-9, 4.92) vs. Garrett Richards (13-10, 3.77) One of tonight's pitchers doesn't have enough T's in his name and the other has too many. Anything can happen! Dodgers are 5-0 so far in this series against Anaheim, dating back to the first three games played in Los Angeles. One could say a season sweep is in the making, but then again, Latos. Either...
