Blue Jays meet so Romero can clarify remarks
Tuesday, June 21, 2011
ATLANTA (AP) -- Toronto manager John Farrell says the Blue Jays held a team meeting to discuss pitcher Ricky Romero's remarks about his teammates.
Farrell would not say if he approached Romero or if Romero approached him about speaking to the team before Tuesday night's game at Atlanta. Farrell says he think Romero recognized some of his comments might have been misinterpreted and credited the left-hander for taking accountability.
After losing 2-0 to the Braves on Monday night on a two-run homer by pitcher Tim Hudson in the seventh inning, Romero said the Blue Jays relied too much on Jose Bautista and Adam Lind to drive in runs.
Toronto had just two hits against Hudson.
