Notes: Marcus Thames is making his Yankee debut due to his general success against lefties. He is a career 1-2 with a long ball against the brave Jon Lester. Tonight keep an eye on the chemistry between Posada and Burnett. Though the rift was over blown by the media it is vital that these two win together. As I said in the last post Phil Hughes is with the team tonight. It seems Girardi is playing match-ups to determine who will come in from the pen. We just ask he doesn't bring in Chan Ho Park. My guess is Joba will be good to go though throwing 30 on sunday. Marte, though he looked awful, is physically fine and is able to pitch tonight.

There will be a light rain in Boston to start the game.
