brian wilson has looked great for the dodgers. .66 era & .88 whip during shortened regular season. free agent after season and thinking he wants to be a closer again. only 31. he's someone we should go after. don't have a lot of faith in robertson as full-time closer - better as a setup guy. wondering why we didn't sign him during the season.

That beard is too good to shave for any job.

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

That dude belongs on The Red Sox.... he ain't Yankee material. Actually he should stay out there on the left coast.... I hear they got the good conja.

Who cares what he looks like if he pitches like he's been?
