DAVID ROBERTSON RUMORS

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

By Steve DelVecchio 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...

Trying To Make Sense of The #Yankees' Snub of David Robertson

The bad thing about the Winter Meetings being in San Diego is that Yankee fans who live on the east coast are at risk of waking up to bad news. That is what happened this morning with the news that came down of David Robertson's reported four-year deal with the Chicago White Sox. On the surface, it looks as if the Yankees made a huge mistake:  They gave Andrew Miller what everyone...

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...

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...

Will the Yankees lead the league in blown saves? Will the whole...
