Cubs threaten late, but Reds hold on

Nothing comes easy for these 2014 Reds. It looked like they would wrap up a fairly easy victory over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday. It wasn't easy. But it was a victory. Despite a very tense eighth inning and a fairly tense ninth, the Reds prevailed for a 7-5 win before a crowd of 20,497 at Great American Ball Park. Mat Latos (5-3) went seven-plus innings and allowed four runs...

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...

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.
