Welcome J.C. Romero

Bill Stoneman is GOOD.

He traded a minor league infielder for an above-average Lefty Reliever.

But the minor league infielder was not Erick Aybar, Alberto Callaspo, Brandon Wood or Howie Kendrick.
So then, who else did we have int he system?
Alexi Casilla. WHO? My point exactly.

J.C. Romero Career Stats

Don't get too excited about acquiring a League-Average middle reliever for a prospect.
Do get excited about acquiring a serviceable arm for a player you'd never heard of who was blocked by 6 other prospects you had heard of that our GM didn't trade.
