Sox Suffer Third-Worst Drop in Expectations

The popular geeksite FanGraphs has determined that the Red Sox have suffered the third-worst drop in expectations from Opening Day to the All-Star Break. Boston's odds to make the post-season were 63.1% back in April and sit at a dismal 25.3% now. That's a drop of a whopping 37.8%. Only the Padres (a drop of 41.8%) and the Mariners (a drop of 52.1%) have fared worse than your Carmine Hose. The biggest gainers in expectations since Opening Day are the Royals (up 68.1%) and The Bronx Embalmers (up 43.0%).
