Pregame Notes:

— A-Rod increased the intensity of his workouts today. Talking about his preliminary workouts, A-Rod said “The first two days have been good. I think it’s how I’m going to wake up (feeling), how my body reacts the next week or so.” [Source: Lohud]

— Ivan Nova is still on the active roster, although his role is “still undecided.” Phil Hughes will act as an emergency long reliever on Saturday and Sunday, just in case things get crazy. Chad Jennings says that Hughes and Burnett are still the scheduled starters for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Enjoy the game. Doesn’t get any better than Yankees-Red Sox!

  1. Hope this lead stays!!!

  2. Bullpen was VERY impressive tonight. DRob & Mo have done it all yr so no surprise there.

    But Logan striking out Gonzo on 3 pitches with the bases loaded?

    Wade came in to strand inherited runners again and Soriano looked strong, confident and happy to contribute in his perfect inning.

    All this bodes very well for the post-season.

  3. Should have saved the Soriano money for a #2 starter, Krob, Logan, Joba, is the future.
