With LoDuca on the DL, Castro is easy to run on...I believe he is 2/28 or something to that affect.

Grag Zaun/Jason Phillips are horrible. I'm surprised Billy Butler didnt get into the free-for-all that was yesterday's Jays game. :-[

My main tools are Rotoworld's The Week Ahead feature, and mlb.com - if you go onto mlb.com you can do sortable stats by team for SB against, and by individual pitcher as to who's given up the most SB's this year.

Easiest catcher to steal on is probably Michael Barrett. Kendall, Estrada, Posada, also come to mind.

As of today, The teams who have given up the most steals are:

San Diego 117
Toronto 101
NY Yankees 95
Oakland 87 (keep in mind they recently traded Kendall, who probably added to this quite a bit)
Cubs 82 (recently traded Barrett to SD)
LA Angels 79
Pittsburgh 79
NY Mets 76
Boston 75

Pitchers who have given up the most steals are:

Wakefield, Bos 28
C Young, SD 28
Maddux, SD 27
Burnett, Tor 23
Webb, AZ 22
McGowan, Tor 20
Kim, AZ 19
Contreras, CHW 18
Mussina, NYY 18
Blanton, Oak 17
Halladay, Tor 17
R Hill, CHC 17

V-Mart, Cle 52-24
Navarro, TB 51/22
Paulino, Pitt 51/23
Pierzynski, CHW 51/15

Well, I've noticed other than when Petitte pitches, the Yankees as a team (Mussina especially) have sort of stopped even trying to hold on runners.

All I know is when Mike Piazza was a catcher, there was nobody worse. :-b

Whenever I used to play MLB 2006 and he was catching for the other team, I would steal with every single player that got on base, regardless of their speed. He's that bad.
