      White Sox RP David Robertson slams the door for 32nd save

      White Sox closer David Robertson tossed a clean ninth inning to record his 32nd save in the White Sox 5-2 win over the Yankees on Friday night Robertson has 32 saves in 39 chances - certainly not an automatic ending to games, and he has suffered a rough September. He went through a stretch of three games where he allowed nine runs (seven earned), and that has been a good depiction of his season - stretches of dominance, and stretches of extreme vulnerability.

      White Sox RP David Roberts survives rough outing for 30th save

      White Sox closer David Robertson managed to secure his 30th save in spite of surrendering three hits and two earned runs in one inning in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Indians. He also struck out a batter. It marked the third consecutive outing in which Robertson has made it interesting in the late innings, with the White Sox closer giving up a one-out, two-run homer in the ninth to Chris Johnson to pull the Indians within a run. The veteran reliever then surrendered a single to Abraham Almonte and secured the final out of the ballgame, and the save, by picking him off first base. Despite Saturday's narrow escape, Robertson's 21.00 ERA and two homers surrendered over his last three innings has to be somewhat concerning to both his team and fantasy owners.

      White Sox closer David Robertson clobbered in Thursday loss

      White Sox closer David Robertson didn't close for anyone but the Athletics on Thursday. He took the loss and was charged with his seventh blown save of the season in a 4-2 defeat. He surrendered three hits, three earned runs and walk in one inning while also striking out a batter. Robertson invited trouble by yielding a one-out double to Brett Lawrie and a single to Danny Valencia before allowing Billy Butler to plate both with a round-tripper to right field. After a streak of eight consecutive appearances without allowing an earned run, Robertson has now given up seven runs (five earned) over his last two innings. The blown save also broke his streak of six consecutive successful save conversions.
