Morning Bits: Robertson, Rivera, Burnett, Cervelli, Zimmer, Pineda

Good morning! Happy Saturday everyone and it should be exciting because there are only 8 days until Pitchers and Catchers report for Spring Training! Onto the Morning Links!

— David Robertson is not worried about following the footsteps of one of the greatest closers of all time; Mariano Rivera.

— Don Zimmer (who now works for the Tampa Bay Rays) said that the Rays will give the Yankees “All they can handle.”

— Even with all the bad things that has been said about A.J Burnett, Francisco Cervelli backs him up and says how A.J is “one of the best guys on the team.”

— Andrew Marchand evaluates Michael Pineda and questions how good will he be.

  1. Joba update…..

    Joba Chamberlain (Tommy John surgery) made 15 throws Friday in his second session from a half-mound.

  2. Per MLBTR, the Marlins have offered Cespedes $40 Million over 6 years.

    IMO, this signing seems inevitable and as we have talked about, it could signal that Miami looks to deal one of their hitters. Guess it depends on how MLB-ready they think Cespedes is. But if they give him $40M, I assume they don’t plan to let him play much in the minors.
