Yankees, Robertson, submit arbitration numbers

The Yankees took care of almost every stone before the deadline to submit arbitration proposals today, but David Robertson remains un-signed, even though there apparently isn't a lot of daylight between what the two sides are comfortable with. Via Ken Davidoff, Robertson submitted a proposal for a $3.55 million salary in the upcoming season, while the Yankees offered a $2.85 million salary. If the matter actually goes to a hearing the abritrator will choose between one of those numbers (my guess is that Robertson would win), but with less than $1 million separating them, I have a hard time imagining a deal won't be struck fairly soon, allowing the Yankees to focus on their pre-arbitration players and filling out the rest of the roster.
