Latos family announces birth of son

Mat Latos joined the list of Reds recently to become fathers for the first time when his wife, Dallas, gave birth to a son Monday. According to his mother, Landon Marshall Latos arrived "practically perfect in every way", and of course she shared photos on social media to prove it. Not surprisingly, the pictures left no doubt. Other current members of the Reds to recently...

Watch Mat Latos but mainly his feline Cat Latos wiggle wiggle wiggle together to '***'

This is a post about Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos and his feline, Cat Latos, dancing to J. Dash's "***."  Put another way, it's: cat + famous athlete + rap song = viral internet video.  More accurately, though, three-year-old Cat Latos basically goes limp and allows Human Latos to conduct it like an orchestra. Latos' wife Dallas posted the video Sunday...

Here’s Mat Latos Dancing With His Cat

Cincinnati Reds starter Mat Latos gets his exercise by taking the mound every five games. The pitcher’s cat, aptly named Cat Latos, appears to get his exercise by reluctantly doing the *** on his owner’s lap. Cat Latos doesn’t exactly look like he’s into the whole dancing thing, but even kitties know not to disappoint an owner who keeps a big ass assault rifle on his kitchen...

Cincinnati Reds: Evaluating trade deadline moves

The trade deadline came and went, and the Cincinnati Reds made no moves to bolster their roster for the rest of this year or for building for the future. There were rumors that they would give up Ryan Ludwick or Mat Latos for help in the infield with the injuries to Brandon Phillips and Joey Votto, but it was a no go. Should the Reds have made a move? On the surface it looks like...

Sell Mat Latos

I’m not a fan of Mat Latos. A few years ago I was very much in his corner, even naming him a dark horse Cy Young candidate prior to his 2011 season with the Padres. Instead, Latos has seen his skill set deteriorate annually. A guy who used to be a strikeout-per-inning starter then fell to 7.5 K/9 and now sits under 6 K/9. Normally a slight ground ball pitcher, Latos has become...

Mat Latos takes three tries to give young fan a ball

After finishing seven strong innings for the Reds on Friday night, Mat Latos decided to take the time to interact with some of the Reds fans in Miami. One fan in particular, a young boy, even got Latos to give him a baseball, or at least, he tried. As the saying goes, third times the charm. Cuteness overload.

Reds have made Mat Latos available in trade talks

getty images Teams looking to acquire a starting pitcher could consider Mat Latos of the Cincinnati Reds. With the Reds hovering just under .500 they are not in the market to add players. In fact they may consider trading away a few players such as Latos. Latos could be made available as the Reds have seen the types of packages that pitchers like Jeff Samardzija have returned. Not...

Cincinnati Reds shopping Mat Latos?

In a big twist for the Reds this afternoon, Jayson Stark just tweeted this out: Not only are #Reds not buying. Other teams say they've dangled Mat Latos. Looking for big return of course — Jayson Stark (@jaysonst) July 31, 2014 Mat Latos is a free agent after the 2015 season, so it shouldn’t be the craziest thing in the world to read, but on paper, the 2015 Reds should be...

Reexamining the Mat Latos trade a full two years later

On Dec. 17, 2011, the Reds acquired SP Mat Latos from the Padres in exchange for 1B Yonder Alonso, SP Edinson Volquez, and prospects RP Brad Boxberger and C Yasmani Grandal. Initial reactions of the trade were expectantly mixed among fans and media alike, with one media member and former club general manager calling it "The most lopsided trade I've witnessed in recent...
