David Robertson named new closer for the New York Yankees!
"“We are going to continue to look, but no doubt we have already spent a lot of money this offseason,” Steinbrenner said. “I have a lot of confidence in Robertson and so does Joe [Girardi]. Robertson is going to be our closer, and I believe he will do a good job. We have done a lot to improve our team and we just have to understand that you cannot be perfect everywhere.” (complete story via New York Post)
