Girardi lobbies for Robby


NEW YORK -- It wasn't quite on par with the Mets' Cougar-gate moment, but under prompting from the YES Network's Meredith Marakovits, Joe Girardi took time out of his Sunday morning news conference to electioneer for his eighth-inning guy, David Robertson, who is one of the five candidates for the final spot on the AL All-Star roster, to be determined by online fan voting.

"Yeah, please go and vote for him as many times as you can," Girardi said. "This is a kid that’s really deserving."
