There’s nothing I despise more than the San Francisco Giants. They’re worse than the Cardinals. Sergio Romo has been a fixture for the Giants since 2008; becoming an icon in the city. He’s always been effective in high-leverage situations, racking up 84 saves with a career 2.58 ERA.
This is another excellent boost for the Dodgers, as Romo will replace Joe Blanton as the primary set-up specialist when things are getting ready for Kenley Jansen.
More than anything – no matter how he performs – it’s a win because the Giants fans are really going to cringe seeing this guy in Dodgers blue and white.
His best years are probably behind him, but he’s still got a true slider as his bread and butter and he’s a guy who has proven that he knows how to collect outs even with declining velocity.
