Who else thinks that the dudes in the Giants bullpen would be a ton of fun to hang out with? Show of hands now....
After half a season of seemingly auditioning various closers in San Fran after wild man Brian Wilson's elbow injury, Sergio Romo proved to be more than fully competent for the gig. The dude with the second sweetest beard in baseball (behind only the aforementioned Wilson), has put up solid numbers converting 14 of 15 opportunities, while keeping a miniscule ERA below 2.00.
Romo has always been a solid arm out of the Giants bullpen, but seems to have followed a very traditional path to major league success. Fortunately for him, he's had stability off the field. Sergio Romo's wife Chelsea Romo has been by his side since he entered pro ball in 2005. Sergio and Chelsea Romo were married and had their first child early; Sergio obviously still in the minors, and Chelsea still in college. They had their first child, Rilen Serge Romo on Jan. 4, 2006. Their second son, Rex Ryder Romo was born Sept. 4, 2011. Sergio and Chelsea spent their early years of marriage apart while he toured the South on his low ball tour of duty, and Chelsea was in Arizona for school. In an interview with ESPN, she acknowledged the strain that put on a relationship:
"The distance is the hardest thing. Being so far away from him and him being so far away from the baby."
This are definitely easier on the Romo clan now as San Fran looks to be a steady home for him for a while.Sergio Romo's wife Chelsea Romo,
