Rickey Romero Suprising
Ricky Romero is a starter in the Blue Jays’ rotation. The 26-year-old was pushed to the front of Toronto’s starting rotation following the departure of No. 1 starter Shaun Marcum. Now, with less than six weeks left in the season, it’s hard to believe the doubts ever existed. At the start of the season Ricky was losing, but was a quality starter even before, in his first two seasons he won at least 13 games. This year he was an All-Star with an 8-9 record. Not very good to make the roster. There were two reasons for that.
1. He replaced a pitcher because they pitched the day before, so they were immediately disqualified.
2. Romero plays for the Blue Jays,which are a bad team but surprisingly improving , with a 64-60 record (516. winning percentage).
Now Romero is 12-9 with 2.73 ERA with four complete games and two shutouts ( he had one yesterday against the A’s).
I think by the end of the end of the season he will be one of the most dominant pitchers in the league, throwing many complete games.
