David Robertson – I Miss You!
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.
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!!!
