Game 2: Must-Win?

While the Sox can go back to Boston down 0-2 and still win, I feel like that they need to win tonight. Beating both Schilling and Pedro would give the Yanks a huge lift, especially with Schilling's health in question. I have great confidence in Arroyo winning Game 3, but not as much in Wakefield in Game 4. Unlike Schilling, who spoke of wanting to "shut up" the Stadium crowd, Pedro has admitted the Yanks have his number of late. This low-expectations tactic, prized by presidential candidates entering a debate, may take some pressure off Pedro and allow him to pitch as well as he did in Anaheim. I also expect the Sox bats to pick up where they left off in the 7th and 8th last night. I hope they can score enough to even the series.
