Can an athlete be streaky -- this study thinks so

1

"Strikingly, we find recent performance is highly significant in predicting performance in all ten statistical categories that we examine. In all cases, being "hot" in a statistic makes one more likely to perform well in the same statistic. A recent history on the order of about 25 at bats, which equals about 5 games or close to one week for the average hitter, has the most predictive power over the next at bat. Furthermore these effects are of a significant magnitude: for instance, a 30 percent increase in the number of times that a batter has gotten on base in the last 25 at bats predicts a 5% increase in the likelihood of getting on base in the next at bat, after controlling for all other explanatory variables."
