NOTES: Tex and Youk are back for more, this time (I assume) for a full nine innings. If everything goes  well, they'll head back to New York to join the fray for Yanks/Sawx. ... The Thunder have won all of Mikey O'Brien's four starts with the Thunder. ... If you missed it yesterday, lefty Josh Romanski was dealt after Wednesday's game to the White Sox. He's already on the roster for the Double-A Birmingham Barons. Good luck to him.

Edit - 4:48: Here's a few rounds of Teixeira and Youkilis taking batting practice earlier.

Edit - 5:39 PM: Mssrs. Teixeira and Youkilis will be done after seven innings today. They were moved up to second and third in the order (as opposed to third and fourth from Wednesday) by request of Yankees farm director Pat Roessler. They'll get more at-bats this way.
