"Tonight is the annual awards dinner for the New York chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America. It’s at the New York Hilton, and it’s a nice night to recognize some of the best in the game. MVP Awards are handed out, Cy Youngs are presented, and a handful of local awards are given.

This year, two of those local awards are going to familiar faces. Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte are being recognized as the Toast of the Town, and Dave Robertson is being recognized with the Good Guy Award, given annually by the New York baseball press to recognize a player who’s gone above and beyond to work with the writers. Robertson was a great choice, and Rivera and Pettitte were easy selections as the Toast of the Town this year.

The dinner begins at 7 p.m. I’m not entirely sure, but there’s a chance some highlights will make their way online or to MLB Network. I believe that’s happened in the past."

"when fan yells, "One more year," Mo points to David Robertson and says "We have our future closer right here and you have to respect that.""


1/26/14, "Rivera: Robertson is the Yankees’ closer now," NY Post, Dan Martin

"Hal Steinbrenner named David Robertson the new Yankees closer last week. Robertson got an even better endorsement Saturday night from Mariano Rivera.

While Rivera was being honored at the New York Chapter BBWAA dinner, a fan yelled out “one more year.”

The retired closer made it clear he had “emptied the tank,” then pointed to Robertson and said “You have your new closer right here.”"...
