Eli Whiteside

Sergio Romo on the Giants’ camaraderie, two new pitches and losing Eli Whiteside

Talked to Sergio Romo for a few minutes in the clubhouse today, while the last, totally anticlimactic Spring Training game of the year was in the sixth inning or so. I asked Romo about what he thinks of the roster moves announced today, any moves that surprised him, how he feels about how he did during Spring Training and what exactly he’s been working on.

Romo’s already the most positive person on the planet, so it wasn’t surprising that he was high on the Giants’ overall roster.

“You can’t be anything else but excited about the potential of this team. How we were able to click as a unit and be like a team and come together. The camaraderie, we’re already pretty dang close,” Romo said.

“With the new guys, it’s just more energy and athleticism. So the fact that they can come in and just be the spark plug in what’s seems to be already a really, really close group, it going to be fun to watch.”

Still, even for a guy who was guaranteed a spot, “Roster Day” still has its painful side.

“Going to be a little bummed out to see Whiteside in Triple-A,” said Romo.

In terms of his own progression, the stats haven’t been there but he’s extremely pleased with what he accomplished. Namely, perfecting a changeup and sinker he’s planning on using this season. “I’ve grown the reputation of being a breaking ball guy,” he said. “I don’t just want be just a one-pitch guy.”
