Last night the Yankees bullpen was the pen that was talked about all off season.  That pen that, even if they were to get into trouble, be it by the starters or by their own doing, they could work through it, and dominate an opponent.

And no, it wasn't perfect... but they did it.  And my suggestion is maybe this is a sign that they can become that dominant pen we heard all about. Green, Betances, Robertson and Chapman did it.  Now... CC Sabathia didn't get the win, but that's fine... a win's a win.  I'm just glad they got it done.

"David Robertson went wild and loaded the bases in the eighth inning, and the Yankees weren’t all that concerned.

'Whenever it’s a tough situation like that, I want D-Rob on the mound,' Aaron Judge said. Or as manager Aaron Boone put it: 'He doesn’t blink.'

Judge hit his fifth home run, Robertson pitched out of a self-inflicted jam and New York overcame some shaky defence on a chilly night to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 on Thursday."

It was a dicey moment for DRob. Even BYB Junior Writer Michael Carnesi mentioned his uncomfortable fan moment on Twitter:

But in the end, he got the job done, and so did Chapman who struck out the side and looked like his own self.  And that's what the pen needed to gain some confidence.  That's what us fans needed.

Thank God!
