Former San Francisco Giants reliever, Sergio Romo has gone and signed a one year deal with the Dodgers. We look back on our five favorite Romo moments in orange and black.

The inevitable, and yet unthinkable has happened. One of the most beloved San Francisco Giants in recent memory has signed elsewhere. That was the inevitable, as the Giants had pretty much made it clear they’ll bring nobody back. However it was unthinkable that Romo would end up with the Dodgers.

Even then, we still must remember him in a positive way. Romo was one of the nine players with three world series rings, and had many memorable moments in orange and black. He should be given a resounding ovation and applause in his first appearance back at AT&T. And from there on out it’s fair game to boo him. He deserves respect, but so does the rivalry.

Romo memories cove anything ranging from clutch strikeouts, to fiery moments with opponents, and always his “tele-novela” commercials. Romo was a character, a clubhouse and fan favorite, and ultimately a fierce competitor. He had faced plenty of opposition in his life, and overcame it all to become one of the most decorated pitchers in franchise history. Here’s to you Mr. Romo!
