The Giants have many talented relievers to fill Brian Wilson’s shoes as he will probably miss the rest of the season with elbow surgery. Santiago Castilla and Javier Lopez could get a shot to replace him.
But Sergio Romo needs to be the closer for at least the next few weeks.
He has a great strikeout per nine inning rate and you need someone who can strike out a batter to pitch the close innings.
Plus he doesn’t walk many. But that’s not why I think he should close.
He’s got a beard and a screw loose. And Giant fans need a closer with a beard and a screw loose. At least for a few minutes while they get used to a year without Wilson coming out of the pen.
