It seems alarmist to say that a game in late May qualifies as a “must-win,” but man, the Yankees really do need this game tonight. Curt Schilling, one of the outstanding big-game pitchers of his generation, is on the hill tonight for Boston. Andy Pettitte goes for New York. Should be interesting to see if Schilling plunks Alex Rodriguez after the Yankee third baseman’s take-out elbow last night. Man, I sure hope the Yanks and Sox don’t get into a brawl. That is the last thing this charged rivalry needs, especially with the possibility of Clemens returning to the big leagues next weekend in Boston.
But first things first: Let’s Go Yan-Kees.
