Here's one for me, and those of you who play fantasy baseball might get this more than others.
People who write articles about the "gambler's fallacy" as it relates to fantasy baseball.
They essentially make the following argument. Say you are sitting at a roulette wheel and we are simply betting on whether the ball will land on red or black. The ball has landed on red 27 times in a row, so that means there is now way that the odds say the 28th time it will happen again, right? Wrong, of course, the odds are still 50/50 because that's what the odds are, regardless of past events.
Now, they take this argument and then apply it to human beings. They say because MarkTeixiera had a bad April and May, that the gambler's fallacy apllies here and says that does not mean he'll have a better rest of the season.
We're talking about human beings, skill sets, emotions, and changing conditions here, not just a wheel with two color options.
Drives me nuts- especially with players who are notorious slow starters.
