In the short term, that might be true. But luck is not some innate factor that remains consistent (although many gamblers wish it was). Highly skilled individuals or teams might appear to be lucky, but it’s their hard work and planning that makes them a consistent success. ” But over time, luck of this sort evens out—which is to say that over a longer period of time, an individual or team (in any area involving skill and teamwork) will normally achieve the level of success it deserves. In sports, you see many instances where players or teams have one-time or short-term success, but that success doesn’t last over the long term.

In many cases, this is just part of the normal ebb and flow in performance and outcomes. But, in some cases, there could be an explanation. Maybe the hitter does particularly well or poorly against a specific pitcher, for example, or in a specific ballpark. If the hitter’s surges or dips in performance are dismissed and not studied, then the instances where explanatory reasons exist will be missed. When particularly high or low metric values are seen, you should track and examine them, and look for patterns that emerge over time.

From 1993 through 2007, Ivan Rodriguez was a remarkably consistent catcher in Major League Baseball. Signed as a 16-year-old phenom in 1988, he was eventually voted to the All-Star team 14 times. The dips in his statistics over that period can mostly be explained by injuries or being on worse teams (which affected Rodriguez’s opportunities and, therefore, his stats), so these were anomalies. Mike Piazza was the other great catcher during the same period, with 12 All-Star appearances and similarly consistent statistics.
