While it would have be nice for the Yankees to finish the sweep of the Mets on Sunday, the Bombers did win yet another series and remain 1.5 games ahead of America’s Team for the AL East lead. It’s worthy to note that David Robertson pitched another scoreless inning, and it’s about time we give him some major props for how he’s pitched in this season. D-Rob has been one of the best relievers in the game and has earned the right to pitch in the biggest spots — although knowing Girardi, he’ll probably get bumped when/if Rafael Soriano comes back. For now, let’s look at how awesome Robertson has been:

AL Reliever Ranks (min 30 IP):

ERA: 1.05 (1st)
xFIP: 2.33 (2nd)
K/9: 14.31 (1st)
K/BB: 2.65 (14th because of the walks)
Salary: $460,450

Let this serve notice to those who want big, flashy overpriced relievers.
