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.
