This isn’t shocking (because no one ever accepts a qualifying offer):
David Robertson has turned down the Yankees qualifying offer.

I know this doesn’t mean that the Yankees will be losing D-Rob because he could eventually negotiate and sign a new deal but also this means he’s opted to explore free agency. On the plus side, the Yankees aren’t losing a draft pick, right?
Update: Per Joel Sherman – Yankees will get a sandwich draft pick between 1st and 2d round of the draft if Robertson leaves.
Well, there you go.
