As the second game of the Sunday Doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox got underway social media started to blowup once again. You gotta love this time of the year! It sounds like the Yankees and Red Sox are not only battling on the field at Fenway but also at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago.

We have always wondered if we would ever see David Robertson back in a Yankees uniform and based on the latest rumor by Jon Heyman HERE, we just might. It’s not the first time we have written about it. Last season when the Jose Quintana talks started Robertson was attached to a rumored deal the Yankees were interested in. The White Sox have since traded Quintana away so now the question remains….are we scouting for the same player?

The Yankees have been rumored to be looking for other options at third base all season but the Red Sox may have more need for Todd Frazier than the Yankees after the Sox decided to DFA Pablo Sandoval for…..obvious reasons. The Yankees do have issues at third base but thankfully not the same kind. The Red Sox are also looking for bullpen help but the Yankees have a more pressing need for the pitching so maybe, we won’t be competing for the same guys this time.

We have always loved David and his wife Erin here at BYB, in fact they sold our first set of BYB shirts so we go way back.

The bullpen is a big concern for the Yankees. Dellin Betances hasn’t been the same for a while now, Tyler Clippard is just horrible and Aroldis Chapman is not the same Chapman from before his trip to the disabled list. The ERA is higher and the blown save the other night really hurt. Robertson could be another great setup man or give Chapman a night off when needed and he knows what it takes to pitch here.

It sounds like Robertson has had a lot of anxiety recently with facing the possibility of being traded. It’s hard to deal with the rumors and worrying about uprooting your family when your wife is pregnant but now that they have welcomed their daughter Violet into the world wouldn’t it be a great ‘homecoming’ to come back to the Bronx? I think so.

I think Heyman was right when he said the Yankees “always have” loved Robertson. Fans loved him and we do too so a Robertson reunion would be a-OK with me. If anymore Robertson trade chatter happens you know we will be quick to share the news.

Until then….congrats to the Robertson’s on their new bundle of joy and we hope to SEE you soon!
