Here's hoping Romero doesn't forgoe her last two years at Michigan and jump to the ... Huh?  What?  There is no professional league?  Nevermind... resume smiling and cackling with glee.

She's definitely got a real chance at it.  Honestly, I think she has a great case for National Player of the Year.  Regular season batting champ, one of the few ever to hit over .500, and leads the NCAA in OBP by a wide margin.  The only hits to her case are a few more errors than you want to see & the fact that she plays in the Big Ten.  Obviously I'm biased, but I doubt there's a player (at least offensively) in the entire country who can top Romo's resume right now.
