This is the anatomy of a collapse. Boston got off to a slow start, looked to be playoff certainties since July, and then completely fell apart in September. The precipice of doom came when Carl Crawford dropped the 3rd out against the Baltimore Orioles instead of allowing the winning run to score, and the chart goes to 0% when Evan Longoria wins it for the Tampa Bay Rays on a walk-off 12th inning HR literally 5 minutes after Boston had lost.

Never take anything for granted.

Two baseball posts in a row, folks. Last night was that extraordinary.


One thought on “IMAGE OF THE DAY: The Boston Red Sox’s Playoff Probability Graph

  1. Justin F.

    In the span of 12 minutes, the Red Sox went from an 89% chance to win the Wild Card to eliminated from the playoffs.

    One of the most incredible nights in the history of baseball.
