ALCS Quick Hits: Brazil, Game 6 tix


I’ve got a short two items as we hope that the rain stays away. First, a Brazilian Yankee fan e-mailed us with a plea. ESPN Brazil is trying to decide whether or not to show Game 7 tomorrow night if necessary or the Cardinals/Giants game. To that end, the Worldwide Leader is hosting a poll. It’s in Portuguese, but help out a fellow Yankee fan. Vote here for MLB.

As far as tonight’s game goes, we have a reader looking to off-load a pair of tickets to Game 6. The two seats are section 305 and cost $80 each. If anyone is interested, e-mail me at the address in the sidebar. Update: The tickets have been claimed.

    Only if he promises to be a little more positive.

      I feel a little guilty helping rig a national vote. CIA ftw.

      • tim randle

        nah…its like chicago style…vote early, vote often :)

        487 beisbol votes from me, i love brazilian (waxes)

    • mustang

      A lot more positive.

    Beisebol ftw

  • nirzhor

    does anyone know if espn does this often? thanks

    • http://www.secondavenuesagas.com Benjamin Kabak

      They certainly don’t in the US.

      • nirzhor

        i don’t live in the us
        where do they do it?

        • Andy in Sunny Daytona

          I would assume only if they own the broadcast rights to both of those sports in your country.

          • nirzhor

            if it helps only espn broadcasts baseball here

            • Andy in Sunny Daytona

              What about football?

              • nirzhor

                don’t show football only american sports are baseball and basketball

                • Andy in Sunny Daytona

                  I guess there’s no need for a vote then.

                • nirzhor

                  for more baseball they only show twice or thrice a week

            • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

              You can probably e-mail the ESPN help team and ask. They usually get back to you.

        • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

          Apparently in Brazil.

      • Trapped In El Duque’s Glove

        They have viewer votes in the UK, but it’s usually restricted to one sport (they don’t have the rights to NFL over here anyway).

  • Tom Zig

    baseball is winning by a large margin

  • blazini

    lol i was thinking why would they want to show some random old game between StL and SF? Silly NFL and their team names that are the same as baseball teams.

  • johnny

    does anybody know why todays game got moved from a 4:17 start to 7:57?

    I imagine it’s so fox can cash in, but just checking.

    • http://www.secondavenuesagas.com Benjamin Kabak

      It was moved once the Dodgers lost to the Phillies. Why they didn’t move it back, I don’t know.

      • TheZack

        I hate MLB/Fox’s refusal to ever move games in bad weather. You would think after last season’s WS, they would do all they can to avoid such things.

        On the other hand, with the weather looking good for tomorrow, and the “vast national conspiracy against the Yanks,” I doubt they will play no matter what tonight :)

  • mustang

    58% to 42% baseball when i voted

  • jsbrendog

    i don’t usually come to the site on the weekends but i am glad i did to help beisebol win tomorrow night.

    the only problem is, it will be irrelevant and everyone in Brazil will get to watch giants/cards because the yankees close it out tonight.

    • Tom Zig

      I like your line of thinking

  • Sal

    Ok can someone give me a ” look out the Window” weather report. I’m sitting in a hotel in Foxboro MA and weather here called for rain all day and we’e only had few sprinkles and overcast here. is the bronx weather that same?

    • MARIS 61

      On and off most of the day. Right now it has stopped but it is still pretty cloudy with some breaks in the cloud cover to my south.
      My guess is they’ll wait until game time to make a decision.

      • Sal


        So its looking better then the weather report I’ve read online. going by them I was going to call my sister on Long Island and tell her to start building a boat

  • WBA

    Anyone know of good bars to watch the game in the LES. I am tired of places that play the game without sound and crappy music distracting me from my beer and playoffs. Also prefer bars that don’t cost $8 for a guiness.

    • tim randle

      my house. beer on tap is free. if the dog punches you, scratch his ears. if the black dog keeps pushing you, rub her belly, you can use your socked foot if you like.

      side door is open, beer is in kegerator in pool house, cold glasses in freezer above it. i have no snacks, bring your own.

      GO YANKEES!!!

      calling back to back shots from upper half of lineup, and 2 dingers from bottom half of line up tonight.

      have we had belly-to-belly bombs so far? i think not :(

    Right now it’s 59% for baseball tomorrow. Let’s see what Espn will do for monday. Hopefully it won’t be necessary the game 7.
    Andy will be at his best tomorrow and we’ll win.
