I can't believe both teams blew it... Both all-star closers blown saves in the ninth... amazing!!

Now it's mostly background noise. I want the Sox to do well, but if they don't, no big deal.
I must admit I did get drawn in to it all in the playoffs of 2003, 2004 and 2006, enough to watch most of the games.
1. The Red Sox had just a 0.3 percent chance of failing to make the playoffs on Sept. 3.
2. The Rays had just a 0.3 percent chance of coming back after trailing 7-0 with two innings to play.
3. The Rays had about a 2 percent chance of winning in the bottom of the 9th, with Johnson also down to his last strike.
4. The Red Sox had only about a 2 percent chance of losing their game against Baltimore, when the Orioles were down to their last strike.
