DAVID ROBERTSON RUMORS

White Sox Closer Helps Out Tornado Victims

The Chicago White Sox have virtually no shot at the postseason, but, no doubt, they spent their off day Thursday preparing for their neighbors to the north taking the Red Line south to continue their crosstown rivalry. Except for David Robertson…who was feeling a little chaitable. The closer, his wife Erin, and their charity, High Socks for Hope, hit the road and traveled to the...

Sox closer: Mike Scioscia was ‘bush league’ to stand in way

    Chicago White Sox closer David Robertson blew a save against the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night, and he felt that some “bush league” antics from Mike Scioscia led to the misfortune. Angels shortstop Erick Aybar struck out to lead off the ninth with the White Sox leading 2-1. The pitch was in the dirt, so Chicago catcher Tyler Flowers reached out and tagged Aybar...

New York Yankees rumors: Andrew Miller

The New York Yankees are in serious pursuit of reliever Andrew Miller. However, if the Yankees have any interest in him at all they need to act fast. The 29 year-old ended his 2014 season nicely with a 2.02 ERA, 103/17 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings between both the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles. Last season, Miller was acquired from the Orioles before the trade deadline...

New York Yankees rumors: David Robertson edition

Last week, New York Yankees free agent closer David Robertson rejected the New York Yankees $15.3 million qualifying offer. This should come as no surprise to Yankee fans, given the fact that he is the top free-agent closer available. Because of this, he will look to maximize his value out on the open market where at least a half dozen clubs are interested according to Mark Feinsand...

David Robertson rejects New York Yankees’ qualifying offer

The New York Yankees have made it their priority this offseason to re-sign pitcher David Robertson. Two weeks ago the Yankees extended the closer a $15.3 million, one-year qualifying offer and on Monday he rejected it to become a free agent. Robertson has worn pinstripes since 2008 and five years later continued in baseball legend Mariano Rivera‘s footsteps as the Yankees’ prime...

New York Yankees: David Robertson’s no-win situation

It goes without saying that New York Yankees closer David Robertson had some very large shoes to fill when the greatest closer of all time, Mariano Rivera retired at the end of the 2013 season. What was not expected was an amazing season from an afterthought of the Yankees minor league system, Dellin Betances.Anyone who claims they saw Betances coming was doing so back when he...

Yankees’ David Robertson hears it from boo birds

The success rate of the best closers hovers around a 90 percent conversion mark. Fifty save opportunities would equate to 45 saves. I would imagine any number of teams would sign up for such a rate.Do closers (or other high-leverage relievers for that matter) deserve to hear the wrath of the baseball public for those times where they are not successful? Does an abundance of positive...

After 18 Saves, Taking Stock Of Yankees' David Robertson

When David Robertson took the mound last night for his 20th save opportunity, it was his first appearance in a week.  Robertson showed no signs of rust as he completed a five-out save, his 18th, securing a salvage of the Yankees' final game of their latest series in Toronto. While we're not quite at the season's halfway mark, now is as good a time as any to take stock of the man...

Why David Robertson's Injury Won't Lead To An All-Out Disaster For Yankees

With David Robertson landing on the disabled list yesterday, it was very tempting to go into panic mode, especially with last year's injury-plagued season, and with Mariano Rivera's first year of retirement underway.It was only natural to ask questions such as these:  Will players drop like flies as they did in 2013? Will the Yankees lead the league in blown saves? Will the whole...
