When the Rays were up 7-0 in the top of the seventh and had two runners on, they had a 99.3 percent chance of winning the game, according to the game’s win probability. Back in 2004, David Appelman noted this week, the Yanks had an 83.8 percent chance of winning game four and an 87.9 percent chance of winning game five. While I’m still working on the odds that the Sox would win four in a row in 2004, Tampa came very close to out-choking our Yankees. I’m glad they didn’t.
