maybe I'm not grasping what all falls under the category of luck. I see luck as being a groundball that would be a routine play, but it hits the base and deflects off for a hit. or maybe something weather related, like the OFer slips in wet grass, and loses a step which allows the ball to drop in. otherwise, I don't see luck being a major factor in the outcome of a season.

AJ: the pitcher threw a curveball that didn't really break that much, and I got lucky and put good wood on it.
translation: he threw a meatball in a known curveball count, and I tee'd off on him.
the way I see it is, that isn't luck. that's one player's skills besting another player's skills in that moment. but the guy was being humble
