Does someone know where I can find the BP article that gave the Sox a 1% chance of making the postseason AFTER they clinched in '05?

Is it linked on these here boards? I remember something like this being ripped apart and still talked about today. Or was it just "crazed Sox fan, conspiracy, everybody hates us" talk?

Before a game in the next week BP will be at the game giving a lecture to UIC grads about SABRmetrics used in baseball. My Dad asked me if I wanted to go. I'm not going to go in with guns blazing but I want to read the article, if there is one...

Thanks for your help!

It wasn't an article, per say, but rather their "playoff odds report" which is updated daily. After the Sox were assured no worse than a tie for first place (and first place outright based on the head-to-head record with Cleveland), BP had the Sox listed at something like 82% likely to claim the division.

If someone did a screen capture, you could see the numbers.
