Greetings from Boston. Technically, outside of Boston at the moment. It’s sunny and warm here and supposed to stay that way all weekend. Good baseball weather.

Yankees-Red Sox will never be an afterthought. But April baseball games have taken a bit of a backseat here to the Celtics and Bruins being in the playoffs, the Patriots preparing for the draft and the sordid tale of the Craigslist Killer.

But you can be sure that old Fenway Park will be buzzing tonight as Jobamania takes on Jon Lester. Tomorrow’s Burnett-Beckett matchup has the makings of a classic.

Meanwhile, it seems fairly evident that Chien-Ming Wang is headed for the DL and that somebody else (Phil Hughes, keep your phone charged) will start in Detroit on Tuesday. Then it stands to reason — doesn’t it? — that the Yankees should DL Wang today and call somebody else up for the next four days. You can essentially get an extra player until you need Hughes.

The only 40-man position players not in the majors are Francisco Cervelli and Juan Miranda. Or they could go with a pitcher. But after a day off, might Miranda be more helpful?
