The problem with Romo is he doesn't have a strike out pitch.


He has a great foul off pitch.

Tonight we tripled the size of our lead over the Clevelands. I'll take it.

He does but it's not great. Choo had one hell of a plate appearance there and make Romo really work.

Romo didnt care at all about walking Choo, he wasent gonna give him a strike to hit,

I’m just planning on a walk-off homer here.

 

The anti-jinx is a success

Aim for a 3-1 series against a decent team and then beat the hell out of cupcakes for awhile.

 

A 1-1 split over the next two games and I'm very happy.

I like the bullpen mix with Dyson/Rogers/Romo not necessarily in that order but mix in May for the 7th and the pen could turn around in the last month here.

Take this series then 2 weeks of White Sox and Tigers should be a good recipe to help the winning pct.

I'd put Dyson ahead of Romo in the righy pecking order.

It depends who is at the plate. If you have two righties, I'm leaning Romo. If there are three righties, go Romo every time.

 

Dyson is a better overall pitcher. If the L/R mix is more in play, go Dyson.
