    How strange to see the Red Sox flounder and be as bad a collapse as the one for the Cubs.

    As we mentioned, however, the 1969 Cubs represent the best case scenario for this year’s Red Sox. If the Red Sox sweep their remaining games, they too will have underperformed expectations by seven wins — but they could finish as many as 10 wins off their projected pace. The latter scenario would represent 3.5 standard deviations below expectations, something which has about a 1-in-4,500 chance of occurring over the long run.

    It couldn't have happened to a more-deserving organization.
