We all know how long it took for the Yankees to get their first win over the Red Sox last year, and this year they took a considerably shorter amount of time. Chad has the story from last night’s victory at Fenway Park.

In my column, I looked at the Yankees middle relief situation. Mariano Rivera is still the given, but the Yankees aren’t committing to much beyond that even though last night’s formula is probably a pretty good indicator of the ideal procession.

Marcus Thames got his first start of the season against lefty Jon Lester, and it will be interesting to see just how Joe Girardi utilizes his available outfielders. Last night, Thames played in place of Brett Gardner but Girardi said that may not be the case every time. The notebook also has items on A.J. Burnett and Jorge Posada, Joba Chamberlain and a nice record for the “core four.”

Beautiful day here in Boston with unseasonably warm temps. Should be a great night for the series finale. Keep checking back all day for updates.
