NOTES: Yankees picked up former Padre 1B/OF Chad Huffman off of waivers and he was sent to AAA. Chan Ho Park is "sick" so he will not be available tonight (good news). Joba is available but less likely to go according to Girardi:
“I’m not afraid for him to go back-to-back at this point, but I’m not real comfortable – depending on how he feels – with him going three out of four days yet.”
It is going to be a hot 85 in Boston tonight. The difference in temperature in the 3 games is really unusual.
