Jason Giambi’s three RBI sent the Red Sox home losers in their final game at the Stadium.

Rick Carpiniello still thinks the Yankees can make a run

Joba Chamberlain could be back next week. This notebook also has updates on Alfredo Aceves, Hank Steinbrenner, Mike Mussina, Derek Jeter and Xavier Nady.

    Both Rasner try and have good attitudes but one needs to be replaced. Right now I’m leaning towards Rasner.

    Just nitpicking, but you say in the article that Hank is monitoring right-handers CC Sabathia and A.J. Burnett…I’m assuming you know CC is left-handed, but does Hank know that? If not, that might be more fun for Mussina to poke at!

    ras and ponson should be replaced with hughes and just to get innings in.they should also consider a nice package of maybe cano,kennedy,hughes in a package for a young ace.the team needs a trasfusion.let the free agents go,sign moose as the 4th or 5th starter,try to sign sabathia and or sheets,keep thinning out the older players and replace them with younger players.a rotation of sabathia,sheets,wang,joba,mussina while keeping arod,jeter,posada and mixing them with a younger,faster outfield,first baseman,catcher,second baseman if cano is traded.

    Beat to the punch on the CC is a lefty thing…

    Also, Aceves won’t be 26 until December.

    Losing 2 out of 3 games at home in a must win situation means there was only one loser.

    I’d like to sit behind home plate once…

    If George were still alive we’d have Santana, Sabathia, Wang, Mussina & Pettite in the rotation. When Wang went down Joba could have then moved to the rotation.
