Best Pitcher/Base Stealers Matchups?

Postby Chicago RedSox » Mon Jun 13, 2005 11:34 am

Who are the best pitchers to sick my base stealers on? A guy like wakefield takes a while to get the ball to the plate and often leaves the catchers off balance.... Who else?

I suppose this belongs in the Who To Start category, but Greg Maddux is easy to run on. Mike Piazza couldn't throw out my grandma.

I dropped Womack a couple weeks ago and my steals have gone down the drain since. I'm thinking of picking up back up and platooning him against some high-return pitchers. I wish Abreu and Suzuki would get running....

The Haren-Kendall combo is considered among the easiest to steal on in the AL. Cecil Feilder could seal against Derek Lowe. Cecil is 400-lbs and retired.

Good week to own Reyes, with the Mets heading to Oakland. Just wish Cameron hadn't got himself injured ... Randolph had finally started to turn these guys loose.
