Never mind that we moved half a game above the Royals last night and are now third in the AL Central. Never mind that a win tonight will put us at .500 on the road this season, and I would like to be. 500 in at least one category. Never mind that our offense has apparently gone to sleep (then again, they haven’t really been awake much this season) and that we essentially need a shutout every game in order to have a chance at winning. There is only one reason why Mark Buehrle had better turn in a stellar performance tonight.
I just picked him up for my fantasy team (which is named ‘The Ozzies’, har-har), and my ERA this week is 7.20, thanks to Mr. Justin Verlander and Mr. Heath Bell. I need a nice, round 0.00 posting to help lower that hideous number.
Counting on you, Mark. Don’t let me down.
