I'm not going to say all that much about him, since Jesse wrote an excellent piece on him back in November. We all remember Ricky had a great start to the season, not so great end, which is basically the story for the whole team. He's just 25 this year. His pitching line:
|2009 - Ricky Romero||13-9||29||29||0||0||0||0||178.0||192||88||85||18||79||141||4.30||1.52|
Bill James doesn't expect him to have a good year: 7-14, 5.59, 30 starts, 190 innings, 96 walks and 147 K.
Chone likes him some better: 8-9, .4.73, 27 starts, 154 innings, 71 walks and 113 K.
And Marcel has a better predicted outcome: 10-8, 4.47, 149 innings, 62 walks and 119 K.
So give us your prediction on won/loss, ERA, starts and innings. Throw in anything else you see happening for the young man. We'll look back at the end of the year and see if anyone came close.
