*GET TO KNOW: DAVID ROBERTSON*

   Q. *WHO IS DAVID ROBERTSON?*

   A. Robertson is young, promising right handed reliever for the New York Yankees.

   *Q. WHY IS ROBERTSON WORTH NOTING?*

   A. Aside from being an “unnoticed anomaly,” Robertson’s win percentage has been nearly flawless in his first 2 seasons with the New York Yankees. It was Robertson who bailed the Bombers out of a bases loaded situation in the playoffs this year, and his contribution on the mound lead New York to their 27th World Championship title, and his very first ring.

   Q. *HOW HAS HE PROGRESSED?*

   A. In his first major league season with the Yankees, Robertson finished the ’08 season undefeated, (4-0,) with a 5.34 ERA, (30.1 IP,) 36 strikeouts, and 18 earned runs. Here’s the kicker… Upon completion of the 2009 season, Robertson wrapped up the second year of his young career with a 2-1 record, a 3.30 ERA, 63 strikeouts, and 16 homeruns in 43.2 IP. That’s nearly TWICE as many strikeouts and 2 less homeruns in 13.1 ADDITIONAL innings…

   As for the post-season, Robertson made 5 appearances this year – allowing NOTHING across the plate…

   Q. *HOW ABOUT CAREER HIGHLITES?*

   A. If winning a World Series ring your second season isn’t enough, then what is? How about the luxury of telling your friends that you’re undefeated in the post-season, with an ERA of 0.00!

   Q. *ANYTHING ELSE?*

   Not to be confused with “The Admiral,” (the San Antonio spurs David Robinson,) Roberston is quickly becoming a bullpen asset – and a dominant reliever with a rising resume…

    I’ve been feeling that way about this guy since he came up. I thought he would’ve been used more in the post season, but I guess Girardi was scared with all the games as close as they were. I bet you that if this kid keeps it up this year, he will be a major player (and maybe the 8th inning bridge to Mo) by years end.
