According to Yahoo sports; The reconstruction of the San Diego Padres resumed in earnest Saturday morning when they traded 24-year-old right-hander Mat Latos to the Cincinnati Reds in return for four players – first baseman Yonder Alonso, right-hander Edinson Volquez and two well-regarded prospects, catcher Yasmani Grandal and right-hander Brad Boxberger.
Well Lon I hope your happy with this trade? I am. Not taking anything away from Latos, but S.D. needed to do some rebuilding. When his contract was up we probably wouldn't have had the pesos to re-sign him. Hope it works out for the best for both teams.
