"I didn't have my good stuff going tonight," he said. "But I doubt that made a difference. I'm not a six-sided die, but mathematically I act like one and function with surprisingly little agency. Any game I pitch is just an expression of my true talent, that of my opponents and something that isn't quite what the average person means when they say 'luck' but works more or less the same way. I hope for a 90th percentile outcome every time out, but to me it's really all about sticking near my mean outcome and giving the guys a chance to win."
