Sergio Romo requested $4.5 million and was offered $2.675 million by the Giants when arbitration figures were exchanged Friday.

Romo, who is arbitration-eligible for the second time, earned $1.575 million last season while posting a 1.79 ERA, 14 saves and a 63/10 K/BB ratio over 55 1/3 innings. His request isn't unreasonable, but settling around the midpoint of $3.59 million could be a decent compromise.
