Need proof that the New York Yankees are teetering on the edge of elimination at the hands of the Houston Astros? Look no further than the insanely low ticket prices for ALCS Game 4 in the Bronx.
With the New York Yankees down 3-0 in the ALCS to the Houston Astros and wet weather predicted in New York around the time Game 4 is scheduled to begin (7:07 p.m. Eastern), ticket prices for the postseason game have plummeted.
Ticket prices for ALCS Game 4 show New York Yankees fans are done
If you’re looking to get into Yankee Stadium and see a postseason game, Sunday night’s Game 4 gives you the perfect chance to do just that for a bargain.
The good news? You can get a New York-Houston ticket for a steal on StubHub or any other secondary ticket market site. The bad news? With the Yankees down 3-0 and their offense registering just three hits in Saturday’s 5-0 loss (with two of those coming in the ninth inning), Sunday could well mark the end of what has been an up-and-down season in the Bronx.
Down has certainly been a term to describe the maybe-no-so-aptly-nicknamed Bronx Bombers in their postseason matchup with the defending AL champion Astros. Just how dominating has Houston been? Consider this from this ESPN article by Jeff Passan: “In three ALCS games, the Yankees have scored four runs. They are batting .128. Their on-base plus slugging (.435) is lower than the Astros’ slugging percentage by itself (.446). The Yankees have struck out 41 times as compared to 19 by Houston.”
The Yanks haven’t just lost to the Astros. They have been embarrassed, making the draw to the Bronx for Game 4 a very hard sell for Yankees fans.
If New York is swept out of the postseason on Sunday night, will this be the last home game for Aaron Judge in pinstripes? Will this be the last game in the dugout for manager Aaron Boone? Those are just two of the questions that Yankees fans will begin bantering around once Houston puts the final nail in New York’s coffin.
Ticket prices are showing Yankees fans are ready to be done with the season, and the ALCS at-bats posted by New York are showing the players may well feel the same.
