B&C Exclusive Photo: J.C. Romero Attacks Devil Rays Fan

Saturday news broke that a Tampa Bay Devil Rays fan had filed a police complaint after being attacked and choked by notorious drug cheat J.C. Romero of the Philadelphia Phillies.テつ Everyone’s favorite Phillies site, The Fightins Dot Com, suggested that I was the victim in this heinous attack, but that was satire and/or they can’t read so good.

Bugs & Cranks has now obtained an exclusive photograph taken moments before the infamous Romero attacked Robert Eaton, a 25-year-old father of two. (In the background, assorted Phillies console each other after losing the series to the Devil Rays and falling to 1-8 over their last 9 games.)

Both the Devil Rays and Phillies are withholding comment saying it’s a police matter and investigations are ongoing, but clearly the Commisioner’s office should already be on this.テつ Especially since Romero has virtually admitted a fight took place, telling a Daily News: “What’d he say – that he was drunk and got into a fight?”

The question should only be how long to suspend Romero, who’s only appeared in 11 games since serving a 50 game suspension at the beginning of the season for testing positive for steroid-type drugs that Mark McGwire took.

Texas Ranger reliever Frank Francisco was suspended for the remainder of the 2004 season after throwing a chair into the stands in Anaheim and cutting up a woman’s face.テつ Ron Artest was suspended for 73 games for attacking fans in the stands in Auburn HIlls, also in 2004.

One season doesn’t seem like enough here.テつ Nothing short of a lifetime ban would be sufficient.テつ Romero is clearly a danger to himself and others, and is obviously totally unrepentant for both his cheating (even to the point of a Clemens-style frivolous lawsuit) and assaulting innocent fans who dare mention his cheating.

What would happen if the fan had showed him this newspaper photo B&C dug up in March:



Meech of The Fightins is the biggest Phillies fan you’d ever want to meet, but even he admits Romero is a threat to the average MLB fan. He found a youtube video of Mets fans making steroid jokes as Romero tried to warm up — in Meech’s own words, the only reason Romero didn’t end up “choking them (because he obvisouly [sic] coulndテ「竄ャ邃「t [sicker] reach them).”

Maybe two years out of the game would be enough for Romero to come to terms with the horrible injustice he’s perpetrated on the game of baseball, and to save himself from throwing his life away in a spiral of violence and (very much deserved) self-loathing.

Step in Mr. Selig — the very lives of baseball fans and one very distrubed cheater are in your hands.

    Any 25-year-old Rays fan seeking the autographs of Phillies players is a putz to begin with. Who’s he getting them for? His kids? Himself? I have no sympathy. If you’re gonna talk personal shit, you better know who you’re taunting and be willing to handle the consequences. Has he never seen Romero on the mound? He’s loco.

  2. Cam Martin says:

    P.S. I too initially thought it might have been you, DC.

  3. Joe says:

    First of all, don’t act like you know what happened, ’cause you weren’t there. Secondly, if anything happened, the kid probably deserved it. Too many fans think that because they pay the price of a ticket they can shout whatever insulting or hurtful comments they want and not be touched. Also, do you think you can write one article without sounding like a whiny bitch? Phillies won the World Series. Get over it.

    Reading this article leads one to believe that the 2008 WS night have been close. Yeah, in a 4-1 games kind of close. Laughable. Guess the Rays being in 3rd place is not newsworthy enough for the author.
