2) NY Mets player the NY Yankees should target to save their season: David Robertson

The Yankees bullpen is supposed to be among the leagues best, and it is, but they've had some struggles there of late. Getting Jonathan Loaisiga back soon should help with that, but even then, some of the Yankees good relievers like Michael King and Ron Marinaccio have had their recent struggles.

Clay Holmes has had an outstanding year, but even he fell off at the end of last season. At times it felt like the Yankees were one arm short. Enter David Robertson.

The former Yankee won a World Series with the team in 2009 and looks every bit as good if not better now as he was back then. He's posted a 2.13 ERA in 38 appearances, racking up 13 saves on the year. Robertson is a guy who can pitch in just about any role. He can get righties and lefties out, can get you more than three outs if you need it, and has extensive postseason experience thanks in large part to his time with the Bronx Bombers.

Robertson isn't quite Josh Hader, but he adds a very formidable arm to the back end of their bullpen. Robertson's name should be a popular one discussed at the deadline, and the Yankees could very well be the team that ends up with him.
