Game #61: Ricky Romero v. Ubaldo Jimenez

New, comments

While the pitching matchup's great, and any Ubaldo night is a good night, let's not forget one subplot of this evening's contest: tonight should mark the first time that 2005 #7 overall draft pick Troy Tulowitzki faces off against 2005 #6 overall draft pick Ricky Romero. Toronto was for a couple of years widely panned for the Romero pick, but unlike our own widely panned first round selection of the following year, he's rebounded nicely to add 5.2 WAR for the Jays (FanGraphs version). That's still quite a bit short of Tulo's 13.6, but certainly respectable.

Tonight let's hope the gap spreads a bit,
