The Yanks brought up Terence Long to play left field and put Chacon on the DL. Also, the Yankees came to terms with DH/1B Erubiel Durazo, adding another hitter with big-league experience to their farm system.
Who would have thought that the Yanks outfield in any game this year would consist of Long, Williams and Cabrera?

It looks like Damon's broken foot has kept him from patrolling the weird outfield in Fenway; an advantage we have lost for tonight anyway.
