Yankees’ David Robertson takes to Twitter after blown save

David Robertson said last night at Yankee Stadium that he wasn’t going to be able to avoid seeing highlights of his blown save on television. In the wake of the Yankees’ 4-1 loss to the Rays, Robertson couldn’t resist checking social media, either.

Robertson logged on to Twitter late last night to see what was filling his ‘Mentions’ column, and he seems to have been pleasantly surprised by what he found —

Nick Swisher said that he doesn’t believe Robertson will have difficulty shrugging off the game. Robertson had a one-run lead in the ninth and coughed up four runs, permitting a game-tying sacrifice fly to B.J. Upton and a go-ahead, three-run homer to Matt Joyce.

“I think he’ll be right back here tomorrow ready to go,” Swisher said. “He’s that type of guy. I’ve gotten real close to him the past couple of years and he’s a fighter, man. I mean, in a situation like that, I wouldn’t want anybody else out there other than him right now.”

I think it will take DRob a few games to adjust to being the closer. it’s differen being the set up man for an inning and being the closer. He is THE MAN to finish the game off and protect a lead be it only 1 run. Mo did it for years. We probably took him for granted. There aren’t many Mos in the the league. David has to throw his stuff with confidence and not try to be painting the corners and being too fine. You can’t afford to be throwing 25 or more pitches in the 9th inning and come back in consecutive games. There’s not much of a learning period or the Yankees could find themselves in too deep a hole to climb out of. Let’s get it done!
