It's that time of year again -- the beginning of the interleague schedule against their cross-town rival.     

Not to state the obvious, but the Yanks need to start winning some games or they will soon find themselves out of the pennant race entirely -- not just the AL East race.  I still don't believe Boston is going to run away with the division because I just don't think it's in their DNA.  

Then again, I've been wrong before.

As for tonight's game, Bobby Abreu is getting the night off and so is Giambi -- while Damon limps back to the starting lineup.
