It's been brought up here that Vlad is not a high percentage base stealer. Well, it doesn't look like Angels' manager Mike Scioscia cares about that because the Angels led all of baseball in steals attempts last year with 190, were succesful 129 times, resulting in a not-so-good 67.9%. Vlad's 63.4% isn't that far below the rest of the team. Of course, this shows that Scioscia's an idiot for sending some of those guys and has actually cost his team runs, but as far as the "Will Vlad be running" question, it looks like he will.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
