Ricky Romero started for the Buffalo Bisons today against the Durham Bulls and stunk it up again. He threw 32 pitches, only 13 were for strikes. Most importantly, only one swinging strike was recorded. That's bad. I have no idea what's next for Ricky Romero.

Chad Beck came in and gave up a single and a double to score the three runs left on base by Romero.
Romero ended his last outing on four consecutive walks. This time he ends it on three consecutive walks. When he melts down, he melts down good.
