    Latos was a good pitcher through 2013, but his injuries in 2014-2015 took some mph off his fastball, and he struggled like hell in the second half of last year and two teams cut him. Plus he has a history of being something of an asshole in the clubhouse.  All that depressed his value this winter, and the Sox took a reasonable gamble on him at a mere $ 3 million.

    So far Latos has had good command of his fastball and he's been very effective with his slider and splitter.  No question he's faced teams who are in a down cycle right now (Trout's hitting .220, and Pujols .170 for example) and that's been part of his success to date.   I don't think he will continue to hold his opponents to a sub .100 bat average.   But he's got some confidence now, and that's been part of his turnaround.  He's capable of putting up a mid-high 3.00's ERA over the next few months and if he can do that, he's worth at least 3-4 times what the Sox are paying him.

    Apparently there's some funny shit in the air in St. Charles. Although, I sometimes think I might be the only progressive out here. Deeply red area, from what I can tell.
