The Yankees, at the moment, lead the Red Sox by 1.5 games. Boston faces the Rangers tonight. The 8:05 game will be on ESPN.
It’ll be Clay Buchholz against Dustin Nippert. Meanwhile, the Red Sox also acquired Chris (brother of Shelley) Duncan from St. Louis for Julio Lugo today.
The Yankees welcome the Jason Giambi-less Oakland Athletics to the Bronx tomorrow night. The Athletics are at home putting a beating on the Twins and then will fly across the country.
I think that’ll be it for me this evening. Catch you tomorrow morning.
More shameless self-promotion: I’ll be on ESPNews just after 8 p.m. talking about the Yankees.
