The post-season odds report at Baseball Prospectus still likes the Sox to win the series despite last night's loss. They have the Sox at 50.5% to take the division series, down from the erotically-charged 69% before Game 1. The Yanks boosted their chances all the way to 76% from 64% after taking the first game in the Bronx. This means, it seems to me, that the dorkazoidals at BP, or at least their robot machines, saw the Sox as a bigger favorite than the Yanks to win its division series before the post-season started.
Still in the Driver’s Seat
I'll interpret the numbers here for you all: It would be an epic choke for either team to lose its first round series. That, or odds reports for 5-game play-off series should probably be ignored.
