"You wanted to do so good because of the guys you saw get picked ahead of you and behind you already in the big leagues, so at times, it got a little stressful," Romero acknowledged. "I was always known as the guy that got chosen ahead of Troy Tulowitzki. But me and Tulo have a good relationship and we always joke about it. Now we're two guys who are successful, and I can't be any happier about it."
"It shows that Alex wants to win and that he's committed to winning," Romero said. "He knows that we have the young talent to do it. I think the whole Toronto fan base right now is pretty excited about the young guys that are up and coming, so it's definitely a step in the right direction."
