Well, honk my hooter.
Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com writes this:
"Looking to enhance their already superb bullpen, the Yankees have put in on a claim on White Sox closer David Robertson,
and will find out by Monday afternoon whether they have any chance at
all to re-acquire their former reliever – though as of Sunday night it
appeared unlikely he's going anywhere.
While the Yankees have
indeed won the claim, sources say, it's now up to White Sox to decide if
they would consider trading Robertson or -- less likely – even letting
him go to the Yankees. At this point, though, there isn't strong
evidence to suggest the White Sox have any intention to let Robertson
leave by any means."
Evidence. Ha. I love Heyman, like this is a CSI: Miami episode. It's baseball... don't get crazy, bro.
While I love the idea of the Yankees possibly wanting to bring back DRob, I just don't see the White Sox doing anything. Although, I'm not sure how this works. When DRob finds out, which, he probably has already, does he ask for them to push for a trade, or do the White Sox control it at that point. If you know how that works, comment.
I find this whole thing interesting. We'll let you know if it goes anywhere. Keep checking back here on BYB.
