David Robertson – I Miss You!

David Robertson

I’m missing these bullpen guys. And I’m still suffering from my basball-withdrawl depression. I now seek to my blog for a remedy. I miss David Robertson, and I need to let things out.

David Robertson: another cute young rookie Yankee reliever. He’s only 24, and will turn 25 in April. At the beginning of the season I didnt’ really know much about David. He seemed like just an average pitcher. Maybe it’s because he was up and down between the bigs and AAA, and he didn’t have a set role in the bullpen. I always thought he was a cutie, and by the end of the season I really loved him. Robertson proved how valuable he is in the Yankee bullpen.

This is the first regular season MLB game being played at the new venue which replaced the old Yankee Stadium as the Yankees home field.

One Robertson moment that I don’t think anyone will forget took place during the postseason. It was game 2 of the ALDS between the Yankees and the Twins. The game was tied and Robertson came in in relief of Marte in the 11th inning. And he had to squeeze out of the biggest jam possible: bases loaded, no one out, and a tie game. Yikes. But not to worry. Robertson was cool, calm, and collected. He got the next 3 batters out without allowing a run! 2 balls hit to Tex, and a fly ball to Gardner. It was so exciting; a momentum shifter for the Yankees. And a Houdini act by David Robertson. I think that was Robertson’s Yankee moment. He proved that he can handle the ultimate jam. And this jam was in the postseason! Pretty impressive.

David looks pretty intimidating on the mound. He throws hard. And he has a cool windup. I really think he has a great future as a dominant reliever. I hope he remains a Yankee for his whole career if he keeps this up. What’s not to love about this kid? He’s adorable. A nice, clean-cut white kid from Alabama. He’s like the all-American boy living the dream. One thing that is so cute about him is that face he makes as he throws the ball. He looks so sad! Here is that sad face:

Hahaha, he’s adorable. I miss you, David. I can’t wait to see you and the rest of the champions! Enjoy the offseason!!!

Robertson played such an important role in the Yankees’ success. He really was a magician the way he wiggled out of those bases-loaded situations. The fact that he’s adorable doesn’t hurt! I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do next year.

How did you get the search thing on the side.
Anywho Robertson was one of the most reliable relievers last season last year this is not including closers. Or else Rivera would get the nood.

It’s always good when rookies come up and deliver, it means the minor league system is working…. funny how the word missing or miss is used so frequently during the baseball free zone and yet rarely ever used during the season…:-)

That was a Houdini act he pulled against the Twins. Huge moment for him. It’s funny how many guys contort their faces when they throw huh?

Robertson was, to me, the most reliable Yankee reliever out of the bullpen besides Rivera. Girardi needs to give him more of a chance to pitch next season. I agree, I miss him too.

Hi. Just came across your blog today. I am missing my Yankees too.

D-Rob was one of my favorite relievers on the team during the season. His Houdini performance against the Twins was just the icing on the cake. He definitely has the potential to be an important part of the Yankees pen, if Girardi will let him.

I’m already counting the days until Robertson and the rest of the Yanks report to Spring Training! :)

He’s another guy who cleans up pretty damn nicely ;D Hehe. Ah, your “I Miss These Guys” entries brighten up my day. It’s like a small, but still significant piece of heaven during the off-season. More, more, more!!! =D

Robertson was one of the most reliable relievers out of the ‘pen in 2009, and it should stay that way next season.
