PREGAME NOTES:

Yanks have won 8 of their last 9 and 11 of their last 13. Season series between these teams are now tied 8-8.

Derek Jeter has now been shutdown for the rest of the season with a sore left hand.

Sidney Ponson is a lifetime 3-13, 6.95 ERA, 1.80 WHIP in 22 starts against the Red Sox. WTF is the reason for starting this guy?

Daisuke Matsuzaka is a lifetime 3-1, 6.30 ERA, 1.57 WHIP against the Yanks. He is 1-0, 7.20 ERA, 2.20 WHIP in one start against them in 2008.

Red Sock hitters vs. Ponson can be viewed here. Yanks' hitters vs. Matsuzaka can be viewed here.

GAME HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN: Nothing like a doubleheader on the last day of the season.
