Crotch grab in the direction of @Proposition_Joe who sends the above picture our way with the caption: “Yikes, clearance rack at Jays Shop consisting entirely of Romero jerseys.”
If I wasn’t lazy and felt like doing some investigative reporting I might call the shop, or walk down, and check out to see if these really are all Romero jerseys– might buy a hat while I’m at it!– but… why would Proposition Joe (aka Chris Romero– presumably no relation) lie?
He wouldn’t lie. I assume.
And if that’s for real… man, that’s cold.
He’s still on the damn roster! I mean, I’m sure that, after a shaky season in the minor leagues and your GM telling the world that you’re going to be taken off the 40-man once the season ends, the number of people willing to invest in your jersey probably takes nose dive. Still, though, not exactly a strong vote of confidence, even if it has more to do with shelf space than what anyone actually in the business of baseball thinks.
The forces of the market can be cruel, huh?
