So you've made up your own definition of random. Because there is no definition of random, conventional or otherwise, that conveys anything other than "equal chance of multiple outcomes".You're absolutely wrong and it's obvious.
What's funny is that you clearly capitulated in the past because you knew this as well. But now you're trying to Google conventional definitions of random to save face.
Say that the 2016 Miami team played Bethune-Cookman in a 7 game series. Everybody knows that Miami was the better team. There's no dispute. So why wouldn't the probability of a Miami win be 100%?
Why would it be, say, 95% instead?
Because of random chance.
Because there's a small chance that the lesser team could stumble into 4 wins. A small probability but a probability nonetheless.
Nothing has a 0% probably except things that are physically impossible.
You've also used "unpredictable" many times and now want to explain why many outcomes are predictable.
I'm just glad that you finally agree with me. The home team is supposed to win and has a better chance of winning, but in baseball the lesser team is expected to win a significant amount of the time, especially the deeper you get in the postseason. But not Miami. Just admit that our 0% winning percentage on the road is a black eye.
