DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)I saw Daniel Norris pitch at the Futures Game. This was the first time I've seen him other than some old video from 2012. I noticed he has reduced his trunk tilt and lost his closed stride. With changes to JA Happ and attempted changes to Ricky Romero, do you see this a philosophy shift in the Jays development process?
(Chris Sherwin from Windsor, Ontario)
Can always count on Chris for a thought-provoking Jays question. Balance and posture are traits that many young players improve over time as their round into their physical peak, so it's tough to credit an organizational shift from one player's adjustments. The previous emphasis on short strides with certain pitchers (ie Sanchez) was an overall negative, IMO, so any movement away from the philosophy would be a good thing. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-09-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ricky Romero - clearly broken, but is he fixable?
(R.A. Wagman from Thornhhill)
Everyone is fixable, in theory, but Romero has a steep hill to climb. His delivery has fallen backwards along with his stats, and his baselines were never strong to begin with, so I would temper expectations. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-08-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ricky Romero. Is the jam done? Or is any hope left?
(Lucas Punkari from Airdrie, Alberta)
He has a lot of underlying mechanical issues that create a steep uphill climb for Romero to find a consistent release point. There is always hope with pitchers, but it only extends as far as they can make the adjustments necessary to succeed. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-05-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Doug, I'm a big Blue Jays fan wondering what's happened to my boy Ricky Romero. He had such a great fb/change combo two seasons ago, but now it seems he can't throw a strike. Timing, mechanics, or just something intangible? Thanks!
(Josh from Toronto)
Yes and yes. His balance and posture have always been an issue - his spine is crooked like a question mark at release point - and these are barriers to pitch repetition. But it's his timing and mechanical sequencing that cause the wheels to come off. In his start against SEA, things were cruising along fine for the first three innings, but then he completely lost the timing of trunk rotation. Late rotation caused him to miss several pitches up and to the arm side, and then he over-corrected to throw six consecutive pitches that missed badly to the glove side and low. This is a common occurrence, and though some pitcher will have small battles with timing and sequencing from time to time, the issue is a persistent problem for Romero. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-05-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)speaking of Ricky Romero, the Jays sent him down to A ball, to work things out, similar to what they had previously done with Roy Halliday. Did they bring him back too soon? I mean, he had one start.
(DavidPaton from Vangroovy)
It looks like Romero was plagued by the same issues that brought him down last season. they made some adjustments to his hand positioning in the windup, but it didn't really address his big issue with timing, so I think that they need to go back to the old drawing board. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-04-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Should the Rangers make a serious offer for Ricky Romero for their 5th starter spot? What do you believe would be a fair offer that the Blue Jays might accept?
(Todd from Dallas)
No. Jurickson Profar. (Sam Miller)
2013-04-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ricky Romero has been progressing through his mechanics changes down in Dunedin. What sort of Ricky Romero will emerge from this tinkering?
(McVanderhuge from Toronto)
Probably a mediocre one at best. I'm sure the talent to get some hitters out is still there and the Jays don't need him to be a front of the rotation guy anymore (lucky for them) but he was so bad last year and this spring that until he shows he can get something approaching major league hitters out (why didn't I just write minor league hitters?) it's hard to be anything but pessimistic. (Matthew Kory)
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)In my deep 16 team H2H dynasty league. I have a pitching staff of Homer Bailey, Wandy Rodriguez, Mark Buerhle, Ricky Romero, and Edison Volquez. Will this rotation be problematic? Even given the size of the league?
(Brent from California)
Yeah, you've got some issues here... you're at least one front-line starter short. Doesn't need to be a Verlander or Kershaw, but even a Cueto or Kennedy or Shields type would be a big help. (Cory Schwartz)
2013-03-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)The SP guide is really, really good. I'm really enjoying reading it. I haven't got to the Jays chapter yet and am wondering about Ricky Romero. Will he be bouncy bouncy bounceback this year? If I have a choice between him and Erasmo Ramirez-Collette in my Scoresheet keeper league, who wins?
(ChoppertoChipper from Edmonton)
Thanks so much, DS. I'd advise Ramirez. I said in the guide that I'm still on the Romero, but I understand if y'all don't wanna jump on board with me this time around. (Paul Sporer)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Name a couple of SP which fall outside the top 75 that could end up inside the top 50 this year.
(The Piranha from Amazon River)
Ricky Romero, Shelby Miller, a healthy Scott Baker, Alex Cobb, Marco Estrada (Paul Sporer)
2012-11-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Ian. We have the same last name. As for my question, I was wondering about your thoughts on the past season Ricky Romero endured. Was this a slight blip on the radar or is he really not as good as he showed in 2011?
(Andrew from Canada)
Greetings Mr. Miller.

No, I don't think RickyRo was as bad as his 2012 looks, but neither is he as good as he appeared in 2011. I can't really explain the great 2011 numbers without looking at his peripherals a little more closely, but his 2012 fall-off seemed to be due (at least in part) to injury.

As far as predicting his performance in 2013, well, that's not really my thing, but I'd expect him to bounce back some. (Ian Miller)
2012-04-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Wow, so I'm not the only one w/ a Cespedes trade. I was offered Ricky Romero and Joel Hanrahan for Cespedes and Benoit. No brainer, right? Can always pluck an OF off waivers with decent pop (I hope).
(Jake from Springfield)
And the Cespedes train keeps rolling... Yeah, I'll go for that trade too. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)There are very few people in the public eye that I respect more than KG (and BP in general) when it comes to the scouting side of MLB. Before last season, he referred to Ricky Romero (as well as B.Cecil and Snelling Eye Chart, now with St.Louis) as "third-fifth" starters. I keep many of his comments in my notes when managing my Scoresheet teams, and when watching the game in general, and this was one that really influenced me to avoid a player, despite the fact that his stats said the opposite. Far from calling KG wrong here, my question is more along the lines of: what did we learn? How did Romero grow into what appears to be an AL East ace? What leap did he take? What was he able to overcome that KG (and presumably others) identified as a less than 1-2 starter?
(smallflowers from boston)
Well, I wasn't scouting myself back then or talking with scouts, so I might not be the best person to ask this question, but reading back at what Kevin said in his Top 11s, control and command seem to be things he once struggled with. Statistically speaking, he hadn't posted a better BB% than he did in 2010-2011 at any level since 2006. He's also proven that his stuff is good enough to post above-average strikeouts, which I imagine was less certain back then. In 2008, KG only called his change-up above average, and it's clearly at least plus now, probably plus-plus. A good change is something that a lot of young players struggle to develop, and it's not always certain that they will. Also, I should point out that I don't think we can call him a 1-2 starter right now. Obviously these distinctions are very arbitrary, and I don't really like using them, but generally speaking, I think he's a three. He's much more the pitcher his 2010 ERA indicates than his 2011-good, but not great. (Derek Carty)
2011-03-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rank these guys 2011 fantasy season's: Marcum, Jonathan Sanchez, Gio Gonzalez, Ricky Romero?
(Tony from Albuquerque)
How did Marcum get in that list? I think he's the best of them, but he's the soft-throwing righty and the other three are wild southpaws. Gonzalez, Sanchez, Romero afterwards. (Jeremy Greenhouse)
2010-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marcum and Morrow are better keepers than Slick Ricky Romero?
(Teraxx from Strong Island, NY)
I think so. Morrow's ERA isn't as good as his adjusted numbers, and the strikeouts are drool worthy. Marcum/Romero is a bit closer, but I'll take the guy who is managing to have excellent control and command despite a recent major arm surgery over the guy with the walk rate much closer to the league average. (Marc Normandin)
2010-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Ricky Romero? Can he continue to strike out a batter per inning, or do you see him regressing? If so, what do you see his true talent level being?
(Matt from Canada)
I'm not a real big believer, I'll be honest. If the K rate does tumble, he's going to give up plenty more runs because his BB rate is on the higher side. I'd say he's a decent #2-3 starter based on where he is right now, but there does exist a chance he can be a sort of #1A guy. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ricky Romero...is he for real or is he just off to a great start?
(teflontim13 from Romero)
Can I choose both? When I went through my vote for last year's RotY award, I was impressed by the fact that Romero's 2009 was not just that great April, which suggested to me some staying power. Now that he's delivering again, it seems to me like he's making a great case that he's going to be around for awhile. Give J.P. Ricciardi and company credit: this was one pick that worked out, however long it took. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-05-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Ricky Romero for real? About a year and a half ago, most people said he was a huge bust.
(Bobby from Toronto)
I remember talking about Romero with a guy who railed about what the scouts knew and didn't know, reminding me how little scouts added to the conversation, and now works ... as a scout. Of course, I am not a scout, am amazed at the insights and techniques of scouts, and remember that I liked Romero better than Ryan Braun at the time. (Did I mention I am not a scout?) (Will Carroll)
2010-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Marc, do you have a strong gut feeling about any of these guys?: Buchholz, Brett Anderson, Dice-K, Scott Baker, Matusz, Wade Davis, Ricky Romero, Justin Masterson, Homer Bailey. Let's assume Tommy Hanson was gone several rounds ago. Please help or my entire pitching staff will be sleepers!
(robertcfox from DC)
Brett Anderson and Clay Buchholz would be the two I suggest to you. Buchholz showed some positive growth in 2009 that I'm excited to see in 2010, and Brett Anderson is a future beast. (Marc Normandin)
2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Christina, When I met you 6 or 7 years ago you talked about how great a kid named Danny Haren would be. Seeing how right you were about him, who do you have love for these days? Thanks for the chat, Dan
(dandaman from Sea Cliff)
Interesting question... you must have caught me in one of my brief bits of knowingness and wisdom. I'm pretty high on Brett Anderson, but that's not really all that bold. I like Ricky Romero more than many seem to; it seems as if people have overcorrected for his in-season correction after those first three starts. Matusz and Tillman seem too obvious. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)It seems as if the Jays have recovered from their hiccup following their early season hot-start. If the standings look the same once Doc Halladay returns next week, what odds would you give the Jays of hanging tight in the playoff race through to September? Making the playoffs?
(rawagman from Toronto)
I'm still not a believer in the long-term viability of that offense. I also don't know if they'll continue to have success with Ricky Romero and Brett Cecil patching the rotation (though I hope they do, because it's fun to watch). (Steven Goldman)
2009-04-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Recognizing that it's real early days but Toronto fans have to be a little encouraged by the good start. Can the pitching staff hold up? And, although some regression is to be expected , is the hitting almost for real?
(prhood from St. John's, NL)
The infield has a 1000 OPS, give or take a few points. So I'm going to say, "no." The offense is better for having Lind and Snider, but it won't be enough to make up for the extra runs they'll give up this year. Caveat: if I'm really wrong about Ricky Romero, who's missed more bats than I expected him to, they can win 82-84 games. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-02-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Christina my friend read me my heroscope about a month ago and it said I will recieve very good news on Feb. 10th. I haven't got any yet. Could you tell me something awesome about the Jays?
(dogtothedog from Toronto)
You're still tied for first place? Seriously, though, there are players to look forward to coming into view. J.P. Arencibia and Travis Snider, certainly, maybe Brett Cecil and Ricky Romero... we can all hope Aaron Hill's good to go, right, and there's nothing that say he can't right now this instant... OK, I'm stretching here. A little less than eight hours to go, maybe it's something non-baseball you're supposed to hear. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)It's a given Snider will make an apperance high in the top 100 but what about guys like Cecil, Mills and even Ricky Romero now that he's showing some progress? Anyone else I'm missing?
(Taylor from Toronto)
Justin Jackson -- I'm still a big big fan. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-08-15 15:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Christina: The Baltimore Sun reports the O's have signed Matusz. Probably inevitable, but good news. what do you see in his future, and how long before he's pitching in Camden yards?
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
Hi Tom, that would be good news for the Orioles, obviously; I expect he'll move up fast, since I think he's generally as having more upside than, say, Ross Detwiler did last year. But as Detwiler or Ricky Romero reflect, as much as these things make sense on draft day, reality has a way of being rude to some. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is there really much reason for optimism with Ricky Romero? You mentioned he's struck out 17 in his brief time in AAA but neglected to say he's also walked 11.
(Isaac from Chicago)
I was really just saying there's something positive here finally. I'm not saying he's going to be a world beater or anything, but plenty think he could be an inning-eating lefty type. (Kevin Goldstein)
