Q&A with San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo

The life and career accomplishments of San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Sergio Romo were celebrated this week during a cocktail reception sponsored by Hennessy V.S at Infusion Lounge in San Francisco. Romo, a proud Mexican-American, 2013 All-Star and 2-time World Series champion, became one of the best relief pitchers in MLB despite not being a highly-ranked prospect in the minors...

Giants get another fast start, beat Tigers, Price 5-4

History demanded a rematch between Sergio Romo and Miguel Cabrera the way boxing fans and pay-per-view promoters want a second fight between title contenders. Romo froze Cabrera with a surprise fastball to end the 2012 World Series. On Saturday, Cabrera got the slider he expected nearly two years ago, on the first pitch of the eighth inning, and slammed it into the left-field seats...

Closer Report: Week 23

This late in the year, Big Head Bochy minus his monsters goes and has to be all "I am changing it back to the way it used to be when all was being drafted and confidence in February Grey was at an all-time high."  So the news that Santiago Casilla will now be in a co-starring role this late in the season just sucks for all parties involved.  Sergio Romo gets back into...

San Francisco Giants: Future Tense

It's March 2014 and you're at a San Francisco Giants Spring Training game in metropolitan Phoenix. The person next to you turns and suddenly exclaims, “I'm from the future.” “Prove it,” you say. They point to their “Germany 2014 World Cup Champions” t-shirt and it seems plausible. “Tell me, future boy,” you say in your best Doc Brown voice, “How far...

Sergio Romo gets 1st save since June 22 for Giants

Santiago Casilla had lost consecutive outings for the first time in his career, and manager Bruce Bochy was determined to give his closer a rest. So he summoned Sergio Romo to close Saturday's 6-5 victory, and Romo entered with one out in the ninth and retired two of three batters for his first save since June 22. "When you've got a couple of guys comfortable closing...

The longest homers for the week ending July 10th

Heading into the All-Star Break, the juice disappeared from our countdown this week. I’m all about some massive homers week after week, but this week’s effort is a little bit disappointing. Next week, we’re not going to have a weekly countdown (apologies to players who smash long homers this weekend), but we *will* be recapping the longest homers of the first half. 1. George...

Week 15 MLB Transaction Trends: Casilla Later Sergio Romo

With the Giants continuing to struggle of late, Sergio Romo lost his job after allowing two earned runs in a third of an inning in his fifth blown save of the season on Saturday, bringing him to 15 ER in his last 15 IP. The keys to the Giants bullpen were subsequently handed to Santiago Casilla by manager Bruce Bochy after the righty converted back-to-back opportunities over...

Bullpen Report, Week 14

Like typical closenado news and happenings, it comes in spurts.  The White Sox, Giants, and the Angels all made changes this past week.  All changes were needed, but only one team, the Giants, look like they will try something new and not return to the original status quo.  Sergio Romo is a proven and decent closer, but he's overused, predictable, and doesn't throw very...

Decline And Fall Of The Romo SAGNOFpire

As many of you know, Bruce Bochy has the biggest head in the major leagues. As a player, when he was traded, he would have to take his helmet with him to his new club because the new team wouldn't have a helmet big enough for him. It made traveling easier, since everything he needed would fit inside the helmet. We all know the story about how when Giants rookie, Joe Panik...

Sergio Romo removed as Giants closer

The San Francisco Giants have removed Sergio Romo from the closers role. Romo, 31, blew his fifth save of the season on Saturday. He has especially had a tough time recently allowing 9 runs in his last 4 1/3 innings of work. In his last five outings he has three blown saves and very well could have had more.

Giants' closer role could be up for grabs

Matt Cain provided stability Saturday night. He threw seven shutout innings, all concrete and rebar, and it was exactly what the Giants needed to reinforce themselves after losing 13 of 17 games. But a solid foundation is no match for a sinkhole. Sergio Romo got swallowed alive, the Giants couldn’t complete a searing comeback, and a night that could have provided some reassuring...

Do the Giants Have a Closer Controversy?

The Giants just experienced a weekend of such nightmarish proportions that, if we were in September, authorities would have to be talking the entire fanbase off the Golden Gate Bridge. The Giants lost not one, not two, but three late inning leads against the Colorado Rockies this past weekend, in what had to be the most horrific collection of Giants games since Games Six and Seven...

Rockies Stun Giants and Romo in Ninth Again

For the second straight game, the Rockies shocked the Giants in the top of the ninth, coming from behind on an inside-the-park home run to snatch away a victory 5-4 on Saturday. “I’m just in disbelief that it happened,” a shell-shocked Sergio Romo said. “Especially the way it happened. Baseball, that’s really all it is. Baseball.” The game seemed to be going the Giants...

Sergio Romo Pokes Fun at the Dodgers in Car Commercial

Sergio Romo is, again, having a pretty decent season as the San Francisco Giants closer. And at a cost of just $5.5 million this season…dude is a bargain. Which is why having the All-Star be the spokesperson for the new, affordable Mercedes-Benz C-Class makes sense. Alright, sales pitch (pun intended) aside, this commercial Romo and his dad Frank did for the Bay Ares Mercedes-Benz...

Giants pitcher Sergio Romo mocks Dodgers’ payroll in Mercedes-Benz ad

Sergio Romo appears in a local ad for Mercedes-Benz which mocks the Los Angeles Dodgers and their massive payroll. Specifically, Romo discusses his new vehicle while his father, Frank Romo, gives him grief about playing for the Giants instead of the Dodgers. The Los Angeles Dodgers currently have a payroll of $229 million. That staggering figure has been debated for months, with...

San Francisco Giants: Why Sergio Romo has been their best player

After finishing a disappointing 2013 campaign as one of the few bright spots for the San Francisco Giants, Sergio Romo has continued to build on the success he has garnered since taking over for Brian Wilson in 2012. I’d even argue he has been the team’s best player so far, probably more so for what he represents than his actual performance. Don’t get me wrong. His stat lines...

All in all, the Giants were playing a relative B-squad on Tuesday.  They had Bumgarner on the mound, and he wasn’t at his best.  And Sergio Romo didn’t have his best stuff. And the Giants still came close to winning. I won’t get worried over one game…hopefully the team will bounce back tomorrow and get a couple of people back in the lineup.  But Matt Cain’s kryptonite...
