Jason Giambi has been moved down to the seventh slot in the order after resting his bad wheel over the weekend in the NL yard.

According to LoHud, Phil Hughes threw 25 pitches off the half-mound today and did some jogging and agility drills.  His return is still likely a month away if he suffers no setbacks.

The featured graphic for tonight's game is the official team logo of the Boston Red Sox from 1931 to 1932.  I'm keeping the Yanks' graphic from last night since they managed to chalk up a win.  

Not superstitious here, but some PA readers are -- so I guess it doesn't hurt to keep it going until they lose.
