DAVID ROBERTSON RUMORS

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 Stand-Out Bullpen Falters at Wrong Time

The only successful thing the New York Yankees did this weekend was prevent themselves from watching the Baltimore Orioles celebrate clinching the A.L. East.The Yankees lost 3 out of 4 games and, unlike the story for most of the season, 2 of the losses were a direct result of the bullpen being unable to hold the paltry leads the offense was able to scratch out for them. The Yankees...

Yankees fend off Orioles to help faint playoff hopes

David Robertson felt it immediately after the phone in the Yankees’ bullpen rang late Saturday afternoon. “I was a little sore warming up,’’ Robertson said. “The shoulder, side and hamstring were real tight but I knew I had enough to get the job done.’’ Somewhere along the trip from pen to the Camden Yards mound adrenaline, something MLB hasn’t found a way to outlaw...

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...

Do the New York Yankees now have a home-field disadvantage?

Something struck me last night when watching the Yankees-Astros game -- how quiet the ballpark was (other than the booing of David Robertson, of course!) The crowd wasn't very loud, even when the Yankees were scoring runs. And after Robertson blew the save, and after the crowd was done booing, you could have heard a pin drop for the rest of the game, it was so quiet. It was if...

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...

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...

Yankees: What song do you want David Robertson to enter too?

David Robertson (Photo credit: Keith Allison) With Spring Training right around the corner, baseball fanatics, like myself, tend to over-analyze possibilities for the forthcoming season. Last night, instead of going forward I got a tad nostalgic. I found myself glued to YouTube watching videos of the newly retired New York Yankees closer Marino Rivera. From last season’s All-Star...

New York Yankees trade rumors

As the baseball world finds itself at the All-Star break, the New York Yankees find themselves on the top of the baseball world. After starting 0-3 and having an abysmal April, the Yankees got hot right at the end of May and have tore through the AL East like nobody’s business. Right now the Yankees have a 52-33 record, tops in the majors. But even the best team in Major League...
