If the Indians beat Buehrle tonight, I'm afraid that the Sox are finished. Don't get me wrong...I don't say this because of one team playing better or worse, about games remaining, about "momentum", about logic, talent, or anything like that. It's just that if the Indians actually beat Buehrle, you will know that you are up against something much, much greater and more sinister than 9 guys on a field and a bullpen. You are up against some odd destiny, some cosmic misalignment, because, as we all know, the Indians never touch Buehrle...can't beat him...ever.
Mark these words: If Casey Blake gets a hit off Buehrle, just turn off your sets, pull the plugs on your radios, or head for the parking lot...because that will be the sign.
