Yankees' future at closer?

A good closer can calm the most skittish fan base, and for the past two decades or so, the Yankees have had the best one in the game. They got a glimpse on Monday night of life without Mariano Rivera, however, and while David Robertson pulled off the save, his adventures may have had hearts pounding across the Bronx. The only reason Robertson closed, of course, was that the great Rivera had, in his past three games, appeared to be not only hittable, but even worse, mortal.
