Ricky Romero cemented his spot as out number one starter in 2011.
His ERA has dropped each of his 3 seasons, starting at 4.30, 3.73 in 2010 and then 2.92 last year. And his innings pitched is going up, 178 in his rookie year, 210 in 2010 and 225 last year. His career stats:
|162 Game Avg.||15||11||3.60||34||34||3||1||224||204||90||22||88||2||180||12||12||119||1.302|

So what is he going to do this year? Bill James is guessing 12-13, in 31 starts, 221 innings and a 3.91 ERA.
I'm thinking he isn't so far off. I'd like to think he will win a few more games because I think the team going to be a little better this. I'm thinking 16-8 (just so he can continue to add 1 to his win total each season, just wait for his 25 wins in 2021), an ERA around 3.50 in 32 starts, 180 strikeouts.
