C+. Romo’s season was plagued from the start. A serious injury to his throwing arm kept him out for quite some time. However, he never really got back to being the Romo we saw in 2012 and 2013. Romo’s numbers total weren’t terrible as he posted a 2.64 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. He did make all four of his save opportunities in 2016. The reason for this grade though stems purely from his attitude. He showed up Bruce Bochy multiple times on the field. His antics and arrogance he displayed was something you shouldn’t see in a team leader like him. Whether he was right or wrong, it simply was not ok for him to act like that. For that, he gets a C+ based on his lack of clubhouse character.. RP. San Francisco Giants. SERGIO ROMO

SANTIAGO CASILLA. D. This one is self explanatory, but there are a few things I want to say about Santiago first. Casilla has been a fantastic servant to the club in the past. He has three world series rings, and was a significant part of each world series run. However, this season was his worst. This grade isn’t an indictment of his career as a Giant, just an indictment of HOW BAD his 2016 season was.<br /> Casilla went 2-5 in 2016, with a 3.57 ERA and 1.19 ERA. He gave up 23 runs in 2016 and blew nine saves. No Giants closer has had that many blown saves since <a rel=. RP. San Francisco Giants
