So, go ahead and grab you a Peep (or two) and dive right in! * Apparently, a rash of counterfeit tickets were sold for Opening Day on Thursday. Cincinnati police are currently investigating the matter. * Mat Latos didn't take his sub-par performance in his Reds debut lightly, writes John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Although his first outing as a Red wasn't too impressive, fans have to be pleased at the way he's handling the situation. We're likely to see a more relaxed, more effective Latos in his second time around. * Earlier this week, Fay also hinted at the prospects of the team hosting an All-Star game as soon as 2015 -- although an exact date has yet to be announced. * Five Reds players are joining forces wit...

Reds' Latos says he was 'over-amped'

Mat Latos admitted that he let the pressure of his first start in a new uniform before a sellout crowd get to him.

And he proved it later in the game with at least three above-and-beyond plays, two of them of the spectacular persuasion...

Marlins try for season's first win against Reds

The Cincinnati Reds had to give up plenty to acquire Mat Latos in the offseason, but general manager Walt Jocketty was certain that having Johnny Cueto and the young right-hander at the top of the rotation would make a significant impact. Cueto did on Opening Day, and now it's Latos' turn. Latos makes his Reds debut Saturday night at Great American Ball Bark, where he&...
