Playoffs, Luck, and the Braves

I cringe when I read the word regression. If a player is outplaying his peripherals, then he is lucky. Sooner or later, he will come back to earth. Or so I have been told. It is, as Kelly Bundy put it, as inevitable as death and Texas. For the most part, that’s what happens. And you have to be careful about making quick assumptions, especially in small sample sizes. But sometimes there are other forces at work that we don’t understand that have more weight than luck.

Johan Camargo was supposed to come back to earth in 2019.
