The Marlins have question marks all over the field and the within the pipeline in 2015 but what they might have is some luck — or perhaps none of it. Luck is nothing more than random variance, the universe conspiring to make things interesting. BABIPS fluctuate, injuries happen or are avoided, and home runs are hit as doubles. Sometimes, a simple roller down the first base line means a team losing the World Series.

There are literally an unlimited number of outcomes inherent in a baseball season. And if the Marlins want any chance to make it to October they need more lucky breaks from the baseball gods than bad ones.
