We don’t want to say today is a must-win game for the Red Sox because if it is, what if they lose? Does it make Game 4 a muster-win game? Or Game 5 a mustest-win game?
But it’s certainly not a game they can afford to lose. Jon Lester is now officially the only Pitcher Who Can Be Trusted this postseason. He basically needs to win every game he pitches for the Sox to have a decent chance of winning this or any other series in which they hope to play this postseason.
So let’s have at it. Productivity across New England (and at least one small part of Texas) is about to plummet. Comment away on all the must-winningness here.
