JC Romero open to a trade

Aug 20 2005 11:30 PM

Go for him. Full out. Lefty in the Twins bullpen. ERA of 3 even. He wants to be traded. Lets get him. After todays debacle, as long as its not one of our top prospects, I dont care. Just do something.

Twinkies could use a second baseman.

Kaz+ for Romero?

From Boone to Kaz..?

Poor Mini soda. They should be desperate for offense, but Kaz was already claimed on waivers and pulled back, so he's untradable these next few weeks.

I wouldn't take Kaz for Romero, if I'm Minnesota.

Why not give Tim Hamulack the chance? How much better than 1.11 does your ERA have to be before you get a call-up?

from that linked article:
... Romero, a sometimes-dominant left-hander with exceptional stuff, has been in and out of the manager's and pitching coach's doghouse since his big 2002 season because of hardheadedness and inexplicable swoons, and he has fallen well down the bullpen pecking order again after an especially poor showing since the all-star break.

Overall this season, he has allowed half of his 34 inherited runners to score and has so many walks (32 in 43 2/3 innings) that three starting pitchers on the staff have fewer.

I wouldn't mind looking into a guy like this, but let's not "go all out" and start pretending that these problems that have made him (maybe) available are suddenly going to disappear as he stabilizes our pen in a pennant drive.
He's had good seasons in the past ... so has Danny Graves.
