Your point?




That doesn't impress you?  Especially after the Tiger bullpen choke job in game 2.  That series should be over with, instead it's tied 2-2.




It doesn't impress me. Getting impressed by such a small sample size is just silly. Papelbon had a 0.00 e.r.a. in his first 24 post season innings and I don't want him as the closer either. All this never ending talk about giving our own kids a chance on this board but whenever there is an opening that can be filled by a kid they start talking about free agents to give the job to.

He is no longer in the position he was in back then.


I see no reason to no go after him and let the chips fall where they may. It isn't about giving anyone a chance it is about competing for the job. If Robertson can beat out Wilson, then Wilson goes to 8th inning.


Unfortunately I do not have any faith in Robertson as closer, but that might just be me.

He was offered 1 million to shave the beard by a razor company. He's not shaving that beard to come join the Yankees. 


Robertson hasn't had a chance to close. Not saying he's Maria no but even he needed time to establish himself. 


The Yankees do need relievers/closers for next year. ..I just wouldn't arbitrarily say Robertson can't do the job

Well, then, I guess that is that.


And Damon wouldn't shave his beard and cut his hair, etc.


A fool would make a decision not to join a team because they want to keep something they can have in the offseason and when their career is over.


I'm certain many here wear clothing to their jobs, jobs that pay 1/100th of what Wilson gets, that they never dreamed they would.


But you are the authority on this matter, so even if the Yankees showed interest, no chance. Thanks for clearing that up...
