[[WMG: The Miami team that lost to the Cubs in the 2015 World Series were [[MajorLeague a Relocated Cleveland Indians Team]]]]
The 2015 where Marty got into an automobile accident was one where the Cleveland Indians were successfully relocated to Miami per the plan by Rachael Phelps, meaning the attempt for the Indians to win the whole thing from the movie MajorLeague failed. This explains why Miami's team would play the Cubs in the World Series instead of the NLCS. Also fitting since it would still be the same franchise that the Cubs actually beat in our timeline (albeit a year afterwards). It would make sense to replace the Indians name and offensive logo with something else when trying to rebrand your team after relocation.
*On the flip side, a relocated Indians team would mean that Cleveland caves in to the Browns' stadium demands in the mid 1990s afraid of losing 2 franchises in less than a decade so in this universe the Browns won the Super Bowl in 2000 & 2012 (The Baltimore Ravens as a result would've been a relocated Houston Oilers team instead forced to keep it's past history in Houston).

This is only a guess, but the three Future!Marties are possibly from the Lone Pines Timeline, the Biff Future Timeline, and the Current Timeline, respectively. As for why they're all here... thanks to all the time travel and frequent changes to the timeline in such a short amount of time (relatively speaking), the timeline to become splintered several ways.

This is only a guess, speculation, but the three Future!Marties are possibly from the Lone Twin Pines Timeline, the Biff Future Timeline, and the Current Timeline, respectively. As for why ''why'' they're all here... my guess is that thanks to all the time travel and frequent changes to the timeline space-time continuum in such a short amount of time (relatively speaking), the timeline to has become splintered several ways.
ways. If there's ever a second season, it will involve figuring out how to stabilize the fractured timeline.

* Confirmed in [[ComicBook/BackToTheFuture the comic book]]. Old Biff mentions having seen ''Film/JurassicPark'', and Doc sees a Music/{{Nirvana}} poster and uses the Internet (TheOtherWiki, in fact) during his first visit to 2015.

In 1955, Lorraine's father tells her, "If you ever have a kid like [Marty], I'll disown you!" Now, this could be RuleofFunny, or he could have been serious. Think about it- Mr. Baines is never seen in the present day, and the only indication that the McFlys have a relationship with him is when Linda says, "Grandpa hit him with the car" (talking about George back in 1955). However, Linda is older than Marty, and thus, probably had a chance to form a relationship with her grandpa before Marty was born and Mr. Baines cut off all contact with his daughter.

[[WMG: Johnny B. Goode has different lyrics and a different melody]]
Listening to the BTTF soundtrack in the car the other day, it struck me that Michael J. Fox sings slightly different lyrics with a slightly different melody at some points in his version of Johnny B. Goode than the more familiar Chuck Berry original. IRL, Johnny B. Goode is one of those songs that no singer sings the same way twice - but in universe, Chuck Berry listens to Marty sing it over the phone and is probably scribbling lyrics as best he can while trying to remember the melody. So Marty's lyrical and melodic screw ups become the "real" lyrics and melody.

What does Biff have to do with Hillsdale's existence? There is never any indication that Biff is involved with Hillsdale's creation, the neighborhood itself developed independently from any of the happenings going on in the films (certain nuances would change, but as a whole, it would remain the same). If he disappeared but the neighborhood didn't, that's because he had nothing to do with it anyway. As for the second problem, where by having Doc committed and thus never creating the time machine and thus never acquiring a means to go back in time, I believe that was the idea. Remember that by going back in time and giving his younger self the Almanac, Biff created a new timeline where he is immensely rich and powerful, invalidating the original timeline and thus no longer necessitating the need for the time machine. Marty and Doc should have faded as well since they come from that timeline, but they still existed in spite of that change because the DelayedRippleEffect of the new timeline had yet to reach them in the future when they traveled to the altered 1985 (the time machine protects them and their [[RippleProofMemory memories]] of any events that occur because of their time-triapses).
