To my initial question, lets say it is luck that the Reds record is what it is when Rolen plays. I ask, what are the odds that there would "luckily" be such a difference.
I was trying to say that it could be from luck by referencing JHJ in 2008, but that I don't believe that the effect Rolen has had is from luck but actually from his overall impact on the team.
