Red Sox have 91.5 percent chance to make playoffs

In their playoff odds report, Baseball Prospectus shows that the Boston Red Sox still have a 91.5 percent chance of making the playoffs.

The site explains that the percentage is derived from the amount "of times a team makes the playoffs -- either through winning their division or their league's wild card -- in the simulated seasons."

The Tampa Bay Rays, who trail the Sox by 2.5 games in the AL wild card race, have a six percent chance of advancing to the postseason, according to the site.

Boston has six regular season games left; three against the New York Yankees, who lead the American League in wins, and three against the AL East's last-place Baltimore Orioles.
