It's been a heck of a year. Between the Yankees coming to grips with the fact that they were not going to contend in 2016 to the Chicago Cubs beating Cleveland to win their first World Series in 108 years, this year has been full of surprises and disappointments. So when I recently heard that we could have an opportunity to make a deal for David "Houdini" Robertson, I got excited.
Now, that's a disappointment to add to my list of many this year.
Maybe Chicago just isn't "his kind of town" like New York is. I for one, despite having what many are calling another "stacked" bullpen, would like to add Robertson to the mix and have a good old fashioned bullpen reunion.

"After bringing back flamethrower Aroldis Chapman on a five-year, $86 million deal in free agency, New York's trade talks with the White Sox about left-hander Jose Quintana have expanded to include ex-Yankee David Robertson", according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.
