The Mat Latos Trade Reaction
San Diego made an excellent deal today by trading Mat Latos for Edinson Voloquez and Yonder Alonso of the Reds. The Reds also did a great job by getting an ace in Mat Latos. Latos might struggle though in Cincinnati because of the smaller stadium while Voloquez may not give up as many runs because of the huge outfield at Petco Park. San Diego also gets an excellent young power hitter in Yonder Alonso who has the potential to be another Adrian Gonzalez. San Diego has significantly improved their lineup today by getting a hitter who could hit 25 or 30 home runs next year. The Padres also got an excellent young catcher in Yasmani Grandal.
