Go to http://www.coolstandings.com/baseball_team.asp and click on New York (Mets.) You can see that right around Sept 12, they had essentially a 100% chance of making the playoffs. Three weeks later, they were home.

MikeC, I suspect that there is a difference. For example, I would guess that scoring in the 3rd inning is higher in the AL since pitchers don't hit. To know for sure would require a detailed study.

ImAShark - If you don't take into account any other factors, and consider only winning the division, then I don't know if I would necessarily argue with you. But that's not quite what I was referring to. The Met collapse was worse first off because the wild card exists now, and it didn't exist in 1964, and despite having a 99.8% chance of at LEAST getting the wild card, The Mets failed to do so.

Also, September 12th is not a random day - it was the day where their playoff chances were highest (based on games ahead, but also on games remaining, strength of remaining schedule, strength of the Phil's remaining schedule).

So anyway, if they lost on September 13th, and the Phillies won, then their chances decreased. And that's what happened. That's why we can say was highest on the 12th, and when they continued to lose - combined with Phillies wins - it dramatically decreased until it was 0.0% on the last day of the year.

By the way, I'm a huge Met fan.

There's no fundamental reason why it should be any different, especially early in the game. Late in the game, when a manager might be compelled to use pinch-hitters in the 8th in some situations or the 9th in others, we might see differences.

Who had a higher percentage on... say... August 30th? Or September 20th? You just picked a random day. Bottom line: 7 games up with 17 to play or 6.5 games up with 12 to play. The 6.5 up with 12 to play is a worse collapse.

On September 12th, they had a much higher percentage chance of getting in the playoffs than the '64 Phillies did at any point in the season.
