Wow. That is some crazy feast or famine stuff.

I guess I should have also noted the sample size. It was only 736 PA for the season. 115-130 PA each month. So you'd expect to see some variation similar to player's monthly overall performance?

Which is exactly what I said... You can't bank on good or bad luck going forward.

The last sentence of that post was literally:

"After a bad/good stretch, the expected outcome is not the opposite; the expected outcome is normality."

Which is why I said good luck, because it gets explained over and over, and casinos still make money.
