Hello and happy Monday.
Today’s BP is not actually about the San Francisco Giants. It’s about former San Francisco Giants. One former San Francisco Giant, in particular: slider-throwing, beard-having, fan favorite, forever Giant Sergio Romo.
He’s coming back to tho Bay Area, but not for the team you were hoping for. No, Romo has signed with the Oakland A’s, per Ken Rosenthal.

I wish it were the Giants, even though that never seemed particularly likely. But at least Giants fans can know he’s in the vicinity.
