Blue Jays starter Ricky Romero ‘sick of going home in October’

Shiiit. Forty Years After…how do you think I feel?!

Ricky Romero is done with spring training.

So antsy to be rid of the exhibition season is the Blue Jays’ ace lefty that after his final Grapefruit League start was cut short by a windy downpour, he was already looking beyond the regular season.

“Honestly, I’m sick of going home in October,” Romero said after throwing two perfect innings against the Philadelphia Phillies and Roy Halladay.

Romero said he has looked enviously upon baseball’s perennial powerhouses — the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, “and the Phillies, too” — and how players on those teams carry themselves.

“They know they’re going to win year-in and year-out,” he said. “ ... I want that to be my team. I think we’re ready.”

...“Every single one of these guys,” Romero said, referring to his teammates, “You look at them in the face and they’ll tell you this team can do some special things.”

I'm sure he can afford a ticket.

What he didn't reveal is that his teammates are in the best shape of their lives.

Every team in baseball will play in October, as the regular season ends on October 3rd.

Yes, Ricky.... cultivate your rage... let it motivate you against the Yankee menace.... do not let the Canadian air pacify you...

They lost that extra edge when Jack Morris retired.

You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here.

He should have picked better teammates, like Pettitte had the good sense to do.

Perhaps a lovely 31 day, 30 night stay at the Sheraton in Acapulco?
