I like Sergio Romo. Other than Cain or Lincecum, he's the most entertaining pitcher on the Giants. If Brian Wilson could throw more strikes, he'd be in the discussion.
The Giants might have a very nice relief situation in the future. They'll have their best reliever actually come in when he's needed -- bottom of the seventh, say, with the bases loaded -- while the closer will be the second-best reliever, coming in to face the ninth inning even if it's a three-run lead and the 7-8-9 hitters are coming up.
Crazy talk? Too soon for such lofty proclamations? Maybe. But I've always envied teams like the '07 Indians who accidentally fell into sensible bullpen usage, and I think there's a strong chance the Giants will do the same.
