After the terrible season he had last year, I don’t understand why Ricky Romero has been anointed as the fifth starter. If Happ outperforms him in the spring, doesn’t it make more sense to make Happ the fifth starter? There is no guarantee that Ricky will ever get back to being the pitcher he once was. Or is this a waiver issue? Is it easier to send Happ to the minors than Romero? Thanks!

I dont think that Romero has been anointed as the 5th starter (very few unprompted mentions I hear). Last I heard he was not on the 40 man roster. I think all Blue Jay supported wish him the best in getting back, improving his command and dealing with lefties.
