You're Not Crazy, The Game SHOULD Be on TBS
Before anyone throws their TV out the window, realize that you're not crazy: ALCS Game 6 between the Rays and Red Sox is being bumped by a re-run of the Steve Harvey show right now because TBS is experiencing technical difficulties.
At least that's the official explanation for why there's no television coverage for the biggest baseball game of the year thus far. Any reference to the missing telecast is conspicuously absent from both mlb.com and tbs.com, so no one seems to know what contingency plan, if any, there are to fix the problems if they continue ... and they might. Consider the fact that pre-game for the actual first pitch was scheduled to start at 7:30.
What can you do now? Follow the action with our live box score right here, and sit back, tune on the ESPN radio coverage (980 on your AM radio dial) of the game and take in the playoffs the old school way.
Hey, everything else retro is hot, right? Why not following the playoffs (yeah, that's not working for us, either).
In the meantime, we'll try to keep you updated as closely as possible here at Baseball Insider. It's now 0-0 heading to the bottom of the first. James Shields pitched a rather unconventional 1-2-3 inning when, after getting on to start the game, Coco Crisp was picked off at first.
