JOE GIRARDI PRE-GAME PRESS CONFERENCE NOTES
Andy Pettitte will be throwing a full bullpen session today.

With approximately one-third of the season left, Girardi plans on continuing to mix and match in the bullpen, claiming his pitchers have adjusted well to that scenario and have been pitching well.

CC Sabathia's recent struggles stem from a lack of location. He's struggled with his sinker of late, and he's not locating his fastball down and away.

Even without Kevin Youklis, Girardi believes the Red Sox have a dangerous lineup ... the David Ortiz they will be seeing in this series is a considerably different player than he was earlier in the year.
