Already had him snatched a draft time. I never trust Wilson, and Romo is a decent fantasy option in his own right.

Even though Romo is the best and most obvious choice, Bochy probably won't let him close

Sucks, but the Giants can replace his production, even if he is one of the better closers in baseball.

Didn't he have elbow problems late last season? His FB velocity has taken a big hit from 2009-2011.

The Giants have been grooming Romo as a closer since last season. Im sure he will step it up.

We're going to trade for Moyer to be our closer because we do love veterans, Or Huff is going to close for us.

lol, please

Yep. I have complete faith in Santiago Casilla. It will hurt their 6th/7th inning production, but they still have a good closer.

Also keep an eye on Heath Hembree. Likely won't be in the pen until september, but he can probably close.

No they haven't. They won't even barely let him pitch to lefties.

and rightfully so.

He doesn't have a strikeout pitch for lefties, they'll just sit on the fastball.

hahaha so naive

P.S. Bruce Bochy is that you?

Well, Romo doesn't pitch to lefties because its not because he isnt effective. It is because we have a guy named Javier Lopez. Although, i'd like to see Romo pitch to more than 1-2 batter at a time. I think he should go a whole inning each time.

Not looking to good for Wilson. Hopefully it won't be a season ending injury.

Bochey said he will use a committee with Romo, Casilla, and Affeldt.

the one they/boston should look at is houston street he is set to hit free agency this year, and probably doesn't have any feelings toward the padres.
