Robertson hinted that he might be better off with a change of scenery. “I think the cycle of a player’s time in certain places, it comes and it goes,” Robertson said. “This is my seventh year in the organization, and maybe my time here is nearing its end. And I’m fine with that.”

It’s true, nothing is worse than toiling for a team for over five years only to be told that a young phenom by the name of Rick Porcello will replace you as the fifth starter in a terrible, terrible, terrible rotation. I mean, it’s not like Robertson pitched his way out…
