On yesterday’s edition of MLB Network’s Intentional Talk, Jays starter Ricky Romero spoke with Chris Rose and Kevin Millar live from Target Field. Despite the journalistic chops of those conducting the interview, the conversation surprisingly light.

Not that I’m complaining, with this story from Romero coming up:

I spent an extra day in L.A., and I took my family [to Niketown]. All of a sudden I see Larry King right next to me, and I’m like, “What the hell?” He was trading in some Jordans or something. I guess he apparently tweeted or something saying that he predicted that the Blue Jays would win the AL East, so I asked him about it, and he asked me, “Who the hell are you?”

Romero goes on to talk about J.P. Arencibia’s Twitter habits, his dog’s catching ability compared to Millar’s, Buck Martinez’s hair and Brian Butterfield’s spitting and whistling ability. He’s a rather likeable chap.

  1. How dare he do anything recreational while the Jays are perilously close to the .500 mark? HOW DARE HE ENJOY LIFE.

  2. “But Ricky, what did you do with the groceries?”

  3. i enjoy that Ricky knew that Larry King, of all people, had predicted the Blue Jays to do well this season..

    Why would anyone know Larry Kings baseball predictions

    • That’s what I was thinking! I can’t imagine wanting to follow Larry King on twitter.. but then again I never liked his program and generally find him a tad on the creepy side..

      • Larry King’s just a bad journalist and a horrible interviewer.

        Other than that, his television career was outstanding.

    • Romero probably heard about it through somebody else. It’s so unusual for any media type to pick the Jays to win the division, that would be news in itself, and somebody would tell Ricky.

      Also we don’t really know the tone of the Romero-King convo. LK is a gregarious NY Jewish type; “Who the hell are you?” may have actually been a friendly greeting.

  4. Isn’t that how he starts every interview?

  5. Larry King didn’t recognize Romero? Quelle surprise. I doubt he recognizes his own mug when he wakes up in the morning.

  6. Does anyone remember baseball cards?

  7. Don’t go near him, Ricky! That man is Death in human form! The Grim Reaper!

  8. Larry King looks like a fucking ghoul.

  9. Gew?
