Was surprised to see this wasn’t about Ricky Romero - hadn’t heard of Seth. Getting old is a #####.

Ricky? Hell, I was thinking Ceaser.

I was expecting J.C. Romero.
   4. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: March 06, 2018 at 11:55 AM (#5634476)
Eduardo. Although I guess he wasn't a lefty, or a pitcher at all for that matter.

According to BB-Ref, there have been 10 major leaguers named Romero and 5 of them were LHPs.

10 Romeros seems low. I thought it was a common name. None of them have been very good either, except Ricky Romero in his brief career. I've never heard of 7 out of 10 of these guys, mostly very recent players. Where are all the Romeros?

Ed Romero: 1912 career AB
Alex Romero: 299 career AB
Stefen Romero: 215 career AB (active)
Mandy Romero: 77 career AB
Niuman Romero: 18 career AB

Ricky Romero: 801.1 career IP
J.C. Romero: 661.1 career IP
Ramon Romero: 67.1 career IP
Enny Romero: 55.2 career IP (active)
Davis Romero: 16.1 career IP

So much for that gamble -

Romero was in the mix for a top half, perhaps even top 10/top 5 pick once upon a time - but a suspension, then a subsequent unspecified "team problem" got him kicked off the team and he fell to the Nats... I suppose it's not a terrible gamble, but it looks Romero still hasn't grown up and the Nats probably wasted 2.5 mil.

Like most last names, most don't make it out of the minors. I see 144 Romeros on the minor league side of bbref.

He actually got kicked off of two teams. The first was for drug issues (he posted a photo of himself in uniform holding a bong on social media, and also tested positive for pot), and the second was reportedly for getting in a fistfight with a teammate.

Sounds like the first one was for stupidity.

I was expecting Enny, who had a decent year with Washington last year. Who needs Seth when you have Enny, right?

Yeah, exactly. I don't give a #### if a guy likes to smoke up, but show at least a little bit of common sense and impulse control.

Apparently, Heyman is reporting that the infraction was a "missed curfew" - Romero out late with his GF... That sounds a little - odd - to actually get him sent home.

J.C. Romero's bbref pic is of him in an Indians hat. I hadn't remembered him playing for the Tribe and indeed he didn't (at least not in the majors). Strange choice.
