I talked with Sergio Romo about his fantastic 2011 season (yes, I mentioned his FIP-), his durability, how he would feel about closing, his contract talks with the Giants, and the sinker that Jeremy Affeldt taught him.
Another nice interview. Romo comes across as a genuinely nice, humble and thoughtful fellow. His comments about being thankful for what the Giants offered him sounded like they came from the heart. If you’ve ever driven through Brawley, CA, it’s not hard to imagine that Romo has to pinch himself to believe that he’s making over $1 M to play the game of baseball in the major leagues.
