First off, I think this is worth pointing out: the Rays currently have a 54% chance of making the playoffs, according to BPro. This is accounting for the fact that the Yanks will likely be putting out a weak team today, and that the Rays have home field advantage in the tie-breaker. Yup, that's right - for the first time all season, the Rays have favorable playoff odds. Wow.
But I wouldn't take the odds results too literally; essentially, they mean that this race is a complete toss up. When we're talking about one or two game results, anything can happen....as we saw last night with that incredibly well-timed triple play.
So if you're feeling confident -- or even if you're not -- tickets are now on sale for the potential one-game playoff between the Rays and Sox. Here are some details from the press release:
Tickets for a possible tiebreaker game between the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox will go on sale Wednesday, September 28, at 9 a.m. ET exclusively at raysbaseball.com.
While purchasing their tickets online, fans are encouraged to take advantage of the free "Print at Home" option, allowing fans to print their tickets at home and avoid any lines at Will Call.
