DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Made a bit of a blockbuster in a 10-team dynasty league. Traded Bryce Harper, Jayson Werth, David Robertson, Glen Perkins, Zach Greinke, plus prospects (farm roster) Joey Gallo and Eddie Butler. Got back Ryan Braun, Carlos Gomez, Homer Bailey, and prospects Xander Bogaerts and Billy Hamilton. I like the trade for me as I can play Xander and Billy right away, but I have my concerns over Harper breaking out. What do you think?
(Sara from Tacoma)
Hi Sara:

Wow, that is a blockbuster! In a league that size, I like that trade for you in the here and now. You got four potential impact players and a strong pitcher in Bailey for two potential impact guys in Harper and Werth with two closers and Greinke. A lot depends on what happens with Gallo and Butler, but if you're playing for this year (and flags fly forever, as we like to say around here) you did well. (Mike Gianella)
2013-12-10 18:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty trade: Shelby Miller, David Robertson, and Brian Wilson for David Price. Fair?
(Sam from Fort Worth)
Hi Sam

David Price is better than Shelby Miller, although I don't know by how much. As of right now, it looks like David Robertson will close. Brian Wilson won't close, but should provide solid value in middle relief. If your league uses holds, I think that's way too much to give up for Price. If it doesn't, I think that's still a little too much to give up for Price, and the deeper the league, the more you're giving up in terms of the potential closer. (Mike Gianella)
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Matt Moore, Ryan Cook, and David Robertson for Gerrit Cole and Craig Kimbrel. Fair trade?
(Jonah from Redwood)
It's not unfair, per se. But I'd take the Cole side of that deal every day of the week and twice on Sunday. (Bret Sayre)
2013-09-12 18:00:00 (link to chat)Should we be worried about Robertson for next year? the rest of this year?
(Pickles Dillhoefer from Early Grave)
I hope you survive, Pickles. We're all counting on you.

I'm going to assume that you're talking about David Robertson and not Tyler Robertson. David should be fine the rest of the way. His injury seemed minor, and he has already returned and had a good outing. A winter of rest should do him good, and while trying to predict the vagaries of relievers from year to year is extremely trickly, Robertson has been one of the best this year. (Mike Gianella)
2013-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looking for saves in 2014, how many of these guys are capable/likely to grab 20+ saves next season: Trevor Rosenthal, David Robertson, Cody Allen, Jake McGee, Brian Wilson, Luke Gregerson, Pedro Strop, Drew Storen, Ryan Cook, Carlos Martinez, Vic Black, Joakim Soria, Neftali Feliz, Steve Delebar, Kelvin Herrera, Carter Capps, and/or AJ Ramos?
(J-Qwellin from Deplorable Future Leaders of America Club)
J-QWELLIN!!!! Interestingly enough, I'm working on such a piece re: 2014 closers. From your group, I'd go Rosy & D-Rob, but honestly any of them have the capability. I know that's a little copout-y, but that's the nature of the beast with relievers. (Paul Sporer)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Paul, in a 10 team mixed keeper league, I've offered a trade where I give David Robertson and a mid round pick in next year's draft for Gallardo. He's replied with Pettitte so I'm removing the draft pick. I'm not using Robertson at all and I'm dying for starting pitching. Is Pettitte a worthwhile risk over my duds like Estrada and Haren for the balance of the year?
(Jeff from Toronto)
Is there much difference between Pettitte & Gallardo? (Paul Sporer)
2013-04-25 12:30:00 (link to chat)Who do you think will take over for Mo as the Yankees closer next year?
(cal guy from cal)
Well, I'm not sure if I'd take David Robertson over the field, but he has to be the most likely candidate, right? He doesn't necessarily have the typical closer's repertoire, and he struggled in an extremely tiny sample as the pre-Soriano interim closer last season--I mention that only because there's a chance that it could impact Girardi's willingness to go to him again, not because I think it's indicative of any lack of closer mentality. I think he'd make a perfectly fine closer. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-11-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's wrong with Mike Montgomery? Do you think he will ever be able to make it in the majors as a SP?
(Nils from Stamford)
Well, we're talking about the team of Kyle Davies and Luke Hochevar here. You don't necessarily have to to be a good pitcher to be a Royals pitcher for a long time. So I'll say that he makes it in the sense that he is a major-league starter for a while, but not necessarily a good one. For that, you'll have to wait for the Royals prospect list, which will be out soon.

Since that wasn't a very satisfying answer, I'm just going to pretend you asked about Mark Montgomery instead. In which case: Nothing! Nothing is wrong with Mark Montgomery. (I really like Mark Montgomery, mostly because he reminds me of David Robertson.) (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-03-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)What's the best team of Berts of all time? Rules: You can have anyone with a "bert" in his name -- Albert Pujols, Robin Roberts, David Robertson, Wilbert Robinson....
(Robert from DC)
Without spending too much time on this one, I'd go with these as my obvious picks:

1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Roberto Alomar
SS: Bert Campaneris
OF:Roberto Clemente
SP: Bert Blyleven
CP: Roberto Hernandez (R.J. Anderson)
2011-07-13 12:30:00 (link to chat)So will the Roundtable go up in written form on the site? I read much faster than I listen.
(Richie from Washington)
It was a written Roundtable, actually, so you're in luck. You can catch up on my ramblings about David Robertson, Steven Goldman's reflections on Abraham Lincoln, Kevin Goldstein's stopwatch stylings, and more, right here. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-08-24 14:30:00 (link to chat)Have you found a Yankee to replace Brian Bruney yet? Or is your lost love irreplaceable? Don't worry, the Internet access in the minors isn't so great, he won't be able to read this.
(Marc from I'm In Your Internetz)
Some of you may know that I harbor an irrational affection for Brian Bruney. I think it originally stemmed from the fact that he was a rare freely available talent pickup made by Brian Cashman and his big bad payroll, and the fact that for a while in late 2008, he was nearly untouchable. I'm not in denial, though--I realize that I need another reliever to love. Fortunately, I didn't have to look far and wide before finding a David Robertson to call my own (Baseball Analyst's Jeremy Greenhouse and I are currently engaged in a custody battle over both Robertson and Brett Gardner). (Ben Lindbergh)
2009-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Let's say a desperate GM is willing to take on the Wells contract in a Halladay deal at the cost of not giving up *any* serious prospects. What's the best course of action for Anthopoulos then?
(Phil S. from NJ)
Call me and say thanks for the idea, since I proposed it in June or so. This is BY FAR the best trade the Jays could make, as there's no number of prospects they can realistically get for one year of no-trade-clause Halladay that would be worth more than moving $100 million off their books over the next five seasons.

I get that you can't do it, for PR purposes, but that's the move. Halladay and Wells for David Robertson. Halladay and Wells for Hong-Chih Kuo. Halladay and Wells for Jeff Francouer. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)How did David Robertson look to you on Friday? There's been no word on any soreness subsequently, so can we take that as a sign that he's close enough to 100%?
(sprechs from Brooklyn)
Looked effective, but I don't have much basis for comparison. I don't see middle relievers very much and honestly, don't pay much attention to them because they're by definition replaceable. I am enjoying the breathless, wrongheaded coverage of Chamberlain in the pen. (Will Carroll)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)With all the outcry over Joba rules 2.0, what do you think the Yankees do with Hughes? I think he's at about 120 innings between majors and minors,so they'll have the same issue with him next year (not helped by Girardi's use of him). Also, if Girardi won't play Gardner over Melky, is there any use to having Freddy Guzman on the post-season roster?
(sprechs from Brooklyn)
With Guzman, they're looking for a David Roberts '04 moment. I guess if the A's won a World Series with Herb Washington on the bench the Yankees can survive having Guzman around. With Hughes, I imagine they slide him in at #5 and skip days wherever possible. I am not looking forward to the endless second-guessing the first time David Robertson blows a lead in the eighth inning.

...Delmon Young, up with the bases loaded, might be my least favorite player in the major leagues. (Steven Goldman)
2009-07-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)You're the Cleveland GM. I offer you Austin Jackson, Wilkin de la Rosa, David Robertson, and Edwar Ramirez for Cliff Lee. You take it?
(Robert O from NY)
I think I can do better. Just two prospects there. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-07-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)3 prospects. Look up de la Rosa. He's pretty good for his 2nd year of pitching. (I'm assuming u meant he is not a prospect)
(Robert O from NY)
No, David Robertson. Just an arm for the bullpen. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)How awesome is David Robertson's K rate?
(willjosh09 from Poughkeepsie)
Very awesome, and we need to see him in some higher leverage situations. You can have the fabled "Bridge to Mariano" if you want it badly enough. (Steven Goldman)
