When Curt Schilling faces Andy Pettitte tonight, the Yanks will be in a dire situation. They are 20-24, 10.5 games behind the league-leading Red Sox. After two solid wins, they looked listless and lost against Julian Tavarez, a sub-par starting pitcher. So now I have to wonder: Is tonight a must-win game for the Yanks?
If the Yanks lose tonight, the go into a weekend series against the Angels 11.5 games out of first and five games under .500. They are now also 7 games behind the Wild Card-leading Tigers. So what do you think, RAB readers? Is this a must-win game for the Yanks? Does King George erupt if the Yanks don’t pull this one out?
