In preparation of the 2011 MLB Fantasy Baseball season, The Fantasy Fix team will preview a team's pitching rotation each day.

Jesse Mendelson's fourth preview of the AL East features Ricky Romero, Brandon Morrow and the Toronto Blue Jays.

As soon as you figure out the Blue Jays, can you please let me know?

Then they sign Octavio Dotel and Jon Rauch and trade for Frank Francisco?  

Do they know you can’t hold leads if you don’t have any leads? Either way, let’s look at the starters.  

What a coming out party for Ricky Romero in 2010. A guy who no one drafted, everyone overlooked or wrote off entirely, yet the 2005 first rounder came through with one of the great value plays of the year.  

Above-average numbers across the board (except against the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays, that is), Romero is poised to build on that in 2011. Though his numbers did tail off at the end of the year, his peripherals stayed strong and I expect a good season from him in 2011.
