OK, I haven't seen a Romo diary yet and not a lot of comments in the Minor Lines diaries either. What does everyone think of this guy?
Today in the AFL, he had another 2 shutout IP's with 3 K's. His AFL record so far is 0-0, 0.64, 14 IP, 4 BB, 16 K's.
Just for background, Sergio Romo was a low round draft pick in 2005. Here is his record so far:
2005, S-K: 7-1, 2.75, 61.2 IP, 9 BB, 65 K.
2006, Augusta: 10-2, 2.53, 103.1 IP, 19 BB, 95 K. Including 7 IP of a combined no-hitter. Season was cut short by a fractured hand from hitting the dugout wall.
2007, SJ: 6-2, 1.36, 66.1 IP, 15 BB, 106 K's!! Used as a 2-3 inning reliever after a mysterious injury at the end of spring training delayed the start of his season. Eventualy worked his way to closer where he was lights out and played a big role in bringing the Cal League Championship back to SJ.
He is a fairly exreme flyball pitcher with GO/AO's well below 1.
Over the last 3 seasons, his WHIP has progressed 1.15, 0.94, 0.75.
What should be his role next season?
Is he for real?
Should he be moved back to starter or stay in relief?
Is he too old?
