Segio Romo will not be charged in the Las Vegas airport incident

5 Comments

Sergio Romo was detained in the Las Vegas airport on New Year’s Day for allegedly “becoming belligerent” with a TSA officer and for not showing his identification. He was cited for violating airport rules and released.  And that, it seems, is the end of the story:

The Associated Press reported that a screening panel used prosecutorial discretion to drop the case, according to the Clark County District Attorney’s office. Romo had been scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 12 and faced the possibility of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Romo apologized after the incident. An incident which, apparently, wasn’t all that big a deal all things considered.  I presume that, with the exception of two oblique paragraphs in the middle of some mid-spring training feature on Romo, this will be the last we hear of it.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
