Red Sox Sign J.C. Romero To One-Year Deal
The Red Sox have signed J.C. Romero to a one year deal (also via the Boston Globe), terms undisclosed. Theo Epstein was upbeat about his new acquisition:
Epstein said Romero emerged as one of the top left handed closers in baseball a couple of years ago. “It’s hard to say from afar how much the WBC affected Romero,” said Epstein when asked if he felt Romero’s 2006 season was affected by participating in the World Baseball Classic last March. “He’s a talented guy who had a very difficult year.” Epstein said Romero had trouble getting into a rhythm and that was part of the reason why he was available at relatively low cost. “He’s a buy-low guy,” said Epstein. “He’s someone who really makes sense at this cost.”I assume by this that he got Romero for close to league minimum after his 6.70 ERA in 2006.
