I know what you're thinking it's too early in the season to declare a "Must Win" but with the current rash of injuries to the pitching staff, the team needs Masahiro Tanaka to step up and stop the slide.

The Mets will counter the now Yankees ace Tanaka with their top prospect Rafael Montero. Tonight is a chance for the Yankees to stop the bleeding, stay above .500 and get the first win against New York rivals in 6 games dating back to last year.

So even though it's early in the year CC and Pineda should be back soon, the Yankees need a win. If for no other reason then to keep Joe Girardi from being kicked out of a game.
