MLB hot stove: David Robertson not surprised Yankees didn't make offer

Added that he never really considered the Yankees' qualifying offer

D-Rob hardly surprised he's not a Yankee

NEW YORK -- Going from high socks to White Sox was no shock to David Robertson, who said on a brief conference call Wednesday night that he could read the handwriting on the bullpen wall when the Yankees signed Andrew Miller to a four-year contract last Friday. "I wasn’t surprised," Robertson said. "You know, it is a business. The Yankees had to do what they had to do. Obviously when they signed Miller I had a feeling they might not approach us as well as we would have liked.

Robertson: Nice guy, mean competitor

SAN DIEGO – Talk to David Robertson for any length of time and the new Chicago White Sox closer sounds nothing like the cold-blooded attack dog, who had the ability take over after one of the most storied runs in major league history and make the job his own. If nice-guy Robertson has a flip he switches when he takes the mound in the ninth inning, the White Sox hope he remembers to pack in for his move to Chicago this spring. The White Sox needed bullpen help moving forward after a season that offered little to no relief, and Robertson fit the bill.

Terrerobytes: quick bits on Robertson and Samardzija

Yankees didn't move on Robertson, Samardzija wants to wear black, and Billy Beane in real life doesn't act like the one in the movies.
