We all know that baseball is largely abgout matchups, and tonight's is in our favor. Buerhle is 2-0 vs. the Tribe this year with a 2.11 ERA, Westbrook is 0-3 with a 4.95.

Tonight is a must win.

Tonight is a must win.

I don't want to be argumentative, but I hate the term must win. To me, the only must win games are when you face elimination. Last time I checked, we aren't. That aside, today's game is HUGE. I hope we win. If we don't, I'd be very upset.

Buehrle hasn't been pitching like the Cy Young candidate from the 1st half. His outing against the Royals is a recent example. Plus I think Westbrook is something like 9-2 since the ASB. This is a much diffferent time than when those stats were compiled. We're going to need great performances from the entire team to stop this red hot team tonight. The tribe have the confidence going into this game. This is technically not a "must win" but in our guts, it sure feels like it.
