What a piece of garbage. What grown adult can’t accept a curfew

Playing with a team of guys who don't break curfew would be a load of fun.

To me it actually sounds like they need to get him to a therapist who can maybe help him get to the root of the self-destructive behavior. You don't wanna get yourself blackballed from MLB over curfew violations.

If the guy can’t fly right after getting kicked off his team in college, I am not sure if there is any hope for him. But apparently his stuff is tanatalizing. I imagine this is some infraction that would have maybe not been handled in the same way in a player without this guy’s history. He should be on a very short leash.

He's a lefty that throws mid 90s, as an above average slider, and can throw strikes.

What he lacks is discipline. His weight has fluctuated in the past. He got booted off his team for multiple offenses. Now issues with curfew.

They apparently kicked him off the team despite leading the nation in strikeout rate. You have to be a real headcase to be that good and still kicked off the team. Given his arm, I think it is totally worth taking a chance on, especially low in the first round.

He’s not getting blackballed- teams keep around guys who get hit for peds, domestic violence, and anything else that doesn’t land them in prison. Unless his arm goes, he’ll find someone willing to give him a shot and if his arm goes, being a choir boy wouldn’t be enough for a team to keep him

hard throwing lefties, so maybe he got fooled by just having the last name on the jersey.

Yeah, unfortunately he's no longer a Nat.  Signed a one-year contract with the Myrtle Beach Mermen:

"Romero remains at home in Houston and has not yet proven to the Nationals that he's ready to resume his minor-league career, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports."

This was from May 1.  Is this guy a lost cause at this point.

Dude is 22. Few 22 year-olds are the final version of themselves.

If he doesn’t report, don’t they control him indefinitely?

I read it as them prohibiting him from reporting until he shapes up. Are they allowed to blackball a guy permanently, or do they eventually lose his rights?  I hope he likes K-pop, because Korea might be his best option.

Who doesn't like k-pop?  I am a sure he will love getting crapfaced on Soju every night.

My guess is he'll be more motivated after he exhausts his $2.8 million signing bonus.

So we'll see him June 15th or so.

At some point the Nats will need to cut their losses and see if they can trade him for bullpen depth.

He hasn't done enough to garner that comparison.
