PREGAME NOTES:

Yanks are 18-9 in games started by Mike Mussina, but just 52-53 in games started by everyone else.

Yanks have lost four of their last five games against lefty starters.

Jon Lester is a lifetime 2-0, 4.12 ERA, 1.42 WHIP in 3 starts against the Yanks. He is 5-4, 4.11 ERA, 1.41 WHIP in 14 starts on the road in 2008.

Mike Mussina is a lifetime 20-17, 3.74 ERA, 1.24 WHIP in 55 starts against the Red Sox. He is 1-2, 5.52 ERA, 1.36 WHIP in 3 starts against them in 2008.

Red Sock hitters vs. Lester can be viewed here. Yanks' hitters vs. Moose can be viewed here.

ACEVES PROMOTED: Alfredo Aceves has been promoted from Scranton and is expected to be a fresh arm out of the pen for now - but Brian Cashman has indicated the team views him as a starter at some point.

David Robertson has been sent back down to Scranton to make room for Aceves on the active roster.

JOBA THROWS BULLPEN: Joba Chamberlain threw 45 pitches today in another bullpen session and is currently scheduled to throw batting practice on Saturday. If all goes well, he could be activated next week and pitch in relief.

I don't think pushing him out there is worth the risk at this point, but I guess the Yankee front office does.
