Padres veteran: Latos' comments "just not smart"

7 Comments

Mat Latos’ comments yesterday about how awful and unfair it was that the Giants go out and acquire players in the middle of the season didn’t go over very well around these parts.  They also didn’t go over very well with his own teammates, it seems.

Dan Hayes, who covers the Padres for the North County Times, just tweeted that “a veteran Padres player expressed disappointment” at Latos’ comments, saying “it’s just not smart.”

I agree.  And I’m not sure which veteran Padres player it was who said that, but let us note that two minutes after that tweet Hayes tweeted some things Adrian Gonzalez had to say about some other stuff.

But that doesn’t mean it was Gonzalez. Perhaps Hayes just works his way around the clubhouse quickly.
