    It's like being on a roller coaster watching him pitch, but I'll take it anyday. Now, if he could just get in the express line instead of loading his cart up with a lot of stuff, hitters would be at an even bigger disadvantage.

    DKnobler@DKnobler Scouts following Yankees are raving about David Robertson. "The other night, his cutter was better than Rivera's," one said.

    I'm sure he's not the only pitcher to have a cutter better than Mo's on one night. Mo's nickname should be Mr. Consistent. He can do it night after night, year after year. If we get that from DRob, oh boyyyyy

    Well, he sure seems to have learned the "icewater in his veins" trick - altho in his case he doesn't just seem not to care if there are people on base, he seems to get MORE intense.

    The only non starter worth that kinda of money is Mo. anyone else who is given over ten million is being paid way too much.

    If DRob is doing "this" year after year - he's getting 15 million. I'm not saying he'd be overpaid or not, but he'll be cashing in - somewhere.

    Oh sure but when Mo goes, it won't take that much to sign Robertson.

    I agree.
    The original comment was about DRob providing this elite pitching year after year, so tht is what I was commenting on.
    To me - if Robertson has another good year (not expecting him to duplicate last year -that'd be absurd expectations) they outght to think about wrapping this guy up with a healthy extension.

    No worries, I knew what your original comment was referencing. I have been thinking that a deal around $18m over three years would do it. Usually, I'd flip out over that kind of deal but as we're shedding Mo's contract and we know this guy can handle NY. Throw in that he hasn't been overworked by Girardi and he might be worth it. Of course, I'd be much happier with three years and $12m.

    Considering he's not FA eligible until 2015, I don't know why you'd sign him to a 3/18 contract now.

    I wouldn't. That is the sort of deal I'd expect when he becomes a FA.

    Re: 2012 David Robertson Performance Thread

    The Yankees will not extend any pitcher until they are in their walk year. I believe Mo and Andy were the last home grown/arbitration eligible guys to get taken care of. They went year to year until their walk year (Mo lost in arbitration!). Wang was upset that he had to go year to year while Cano got a great extemsion. Wang had just came off 2 19 win seasons. The Yankees were absolutely right to hold off and go year to year with Wang because pitchers get hurt. In DRob we know he is one of the best young setup men in baseball and does have closer stuff. But until he proved that he can indeed close you can't just hand him closer money. Lets say that Mo retires and the Yankees do plan to give the 9th inning to DRob in 2013. He will be paid based on his past performance, not future because that is what they would argue if they had to go to arbitration. That will put him in Mike Adams's salary range of 1 year/$4.4M per Cotts. Maybe a bit less in that Adams has more service time.

    Once he proves he can close then the Yankees can talk extension but he would still probably be looking at a 1 year deal in 2014, his last year of arbitration.

    I think Dave Robertson looked positively snazzy in his retro uni. And is this sequence classic, or what?

    I said last year that he was probably the best non-Mo reliever since Mo became Mo. There's definitely no doubt about it now.

    Given how relievers' performance typically fluctuate, and how unbelievable he was last year, it's incredible to me that he's off to this kind of start

    The elite relievers don't and if Robertson keeps this up this season, he becomes one of them.

    His season last year was off the charts, even for an elite reliever. It's very early still, but I'd think it would be highly unusual if he puts up those kinds of numbers again

    It's from a fantasy perspective but this guy ranks him the #2 no closing reliever in baseball.
