Is LA’s love affair with Sergio Romo over?

It was a sight to behold. Sergio Romo – a guy with three World Series rings earned while a member of the hated San Francisco Giants – was now wearing a Dodgers uniform, a uniform that his father and grandfather had dreamed that he would one day wear. After all, they and Romo himself had […]
