Romero tames Tigers
Looking back, I never really hopped on the Ricky Romero train during Spring Training, but I’m certainly rethinking that. Cito Gaston shocked us with his announcement in March that Romero was suddenly thrust back into the arms race for the Jays final rotation spots. In his previous outings, Romero was never really that dominant, so it was a surprise to learn that he was back up for consideration. What can I say … Cito with all his wealth in baseball knowledge, was right.
Another thing that Romero has going for him is his likeness to James Todd Smith the 3rd, as people are starting to notice that Ricky Romero bears a certain similarity to LL Cool J. Just imagine if LL were to trade his Kangol hat for a Blue Jays cap, and that’s pretty much Ricky Romero. And I think I have the perfect nickname for him too – RR Cool Jay.
