My own little prediction last year when he started off so terrible was that by beginning of 2013 season he would be the Giants closer, considering his struggles at that time and the Wilson situation (injured, would be a FA). When they put Lincecum in the pen during postseason and he did so well, I thought my prediction might come true. But they're being stubborn on this and thinking he can still be an effective starter. Now I'm not so sure that closer would be the right role for him, but as you say, middle relief might be best spot for him. I wasn't sold on Romo as a closer, thought he was best-suited as a setup man, but can't argue with his results thus far.
