Reds 2012 Pitching Potential

The Reds have made two highly debated trades as of late. I have listened to every side, every point of view, and baseball logic. Some fans are upset we threw away prospect talent; others say Walt Jocketty made the right choice. Whatever the argument, it is still 60 feet 6 inches to the plate, and we have two guys who can go that distance with style, skill, and speed...It's called 'stuff', and Mat Latos and Sean Marshall have got plenty of it.

Sean Marshall: The Reds acquired relief pitcher Sean Marshall from the Chicago Cubs. The Reds traded lefty pitcher Travis Wood, outfielder Dave Sappelt, and MiLB Ronald Torreyes.

        -Sean Marshall brings a career ERA of 3.96. After 2011, Sean had an ERA of 2.26 with 79 strike outs, 6 wins and 6 losses as a relief pitcher.

Mat Latos: The Reds acquired starting pitcher Mat Latos from the San Diego Padres. The Reds traded firstbasemen/outfielder Yonder Alonso, prospect pitcher Brad Boxberger, catcher Yasmani Grandal, and righty Edinson Volquez.

        -Mat Latos brings a career ERA of 3.47. After 2011, Mat had an ERA of 3.37, with 185 strike outs, 9 wins and 14 losses as a starting pitcher.
