Determining Luck in H2H

In my league we have 14-16 kids, 14 man each league we do all 4 sports (some dont do eevry sport)

for lat 4 years, pretty much same teams in their respective sports come in 1st, 2nd make playoffs & same teams r horrible, 1 kid is a hockey expert, he won league last 2 years, knows squat about baseball & he hasnt made playoffs on baseball once,

their is a little luck invlolved nin H2H, but in a course of the season, the better managers 7 teams will rise above, Now playoffs is a lil more luck i think, cause its a short series, couple bad days your screwed, but if you know what your doing youll be fine,

& that is that

Everybody agrees on this? That assumption is absurd.

I guess having your team healthy while your opponents are injured is not luck?

I guess you knew Graves was going to have 26 saves before the half way point... or that Mora would put up top 10 numbers.

Here's a scenario. You take two guys of equal skill level. (this is quite common... I mean we're not talking about Chess here) One of them wins the league and the other one comes in fifth place. Wouldn't you say that the guy who won the league was lucky?

Whatever. This debate is stupid.

I am in a CBS H2H league and I will tell you...luck plays a big role. There are some teams in the majors that win one run games...lots of them. I have lost several close weeks...I am ranked 2nd best in total points and overall breakdown...but my record is 4-6. When I win a week, I tend to win it huge.
The weather is here. I wish you were beautiful.
