Catchers to run against

Postby hot4tx » Mon Mar 31, 2008 1:06 pm

I think this was posted before, but I'm not sure if it was this year and absolutely can't find it. Anyone have a link to the article discussing easiest and hardest catchers to run against? I found it very useful last year for daily lineup adjustments.

I used the search function and put in "catchers to run" (with quotations), and came up with a thread from Aug 07. Perhaps there's a more recent one on another forum, but that's how I'd find it.

Josh Bard isn't even on that list, but if he were he would be near the bottom. Michael Bourn: steal 1 of 50 ;-D

Bourn stole a base against Bard last night.

VMart was a defensive liability 2 years ago, but he improved his game quite a bit last year.

Excellent, that's what I was looking for. See if I would have had this yesterday I MIGHT have gone with Thome even though he was going against a tough lefty, because Tavares doesn't have as great a chance to steal against Y Molina. :(


Bookmarked for future reference!
