No - Romo will be back at some point.

If Casilla continues to be effective, there's zero reason to remove him.  He's been a highly effective reliever for them going on five seasons. It's not as if Casilla is some middling reliever they are turning to because their closer is struggling.

That is how he got the job in the first place. Romo is/was struggling. Bochy will go back to him. No matter who the closer is though the phrase "IF he continues to effective" applies to all closers that takeover during the season.

That's precisely my point.  IF he continues to be effective, he's not going back to Romo.

I guess you can describe him as being wildly effective. He seems to miss the catcher's mitt by a lot, yet he hasn't been hurt so far. He's got the movement on his pitches, enough to offset the lack of consistent location.
