Shortly after the game ended, I recorded my thoughts on the situation. Check out the video below and let me know what you think.
Sergio Romo has had an incredible career, and that intensity he brings to the mound probably has a lot to do with how he got here and why he’s lasted so long in the league. It also has to be difficult to turn off. As I stated in the video, however, I’m concerned Romo is going to take himself out of a number of games.
MLB is far less tolerant of any incidents like these in 2020. Romo is such a key piece to the bullpen, I’d hate to see him get suspended. These dust ups could also result in several of his teammates getting suspended if things escalated. There’s also always the possibility opposing teams react by throwing at Twins hitters.
Here’s what Rocco Baldelli had to say about the situation, via Betsy Helfand of the Pioneer Press.
Finally, I want to end this with the entire situation as it played out on TV. No, the cameras and mics don’t catch everything, but this is the most complete, uninterrupted version of what happened available at this time.
UPDATE: Sergio Romo has been issued a one-game suspension, which I'd speculate he'll likely appeal, and both Romo and Lindor were fined.
