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.
