What teams give up the most SB?

Postby mu_biggie » Sun Apr 26, 2009 9:41 pm

I was wondering if anyone knew of a site that tracked this or a place that I can look to see what teams get run on the most. You see I know that I am going to have a problem with SB this year and I have Micheal Bourne and I dont want to play him but if I am going to play him I want to have the best chance for success. If you know of anything please let me know.

I remember a thread similar to this from last year or the year before, but couldn't find it. Victor Martinez is a very good guy to run on.

The link that was posted above is a good one, but don't put too much stock in the '09 stats as it's a bit early. I'd put more stock in last year's stats for that player with a full season of their CS%.

I created a spreadsheet that has primary and backup catcher caught stealing percentage. I factor career caught stealing percentage against last year's caught steal percentage and then put playing time estimates on backup catchers (or ignore guys who will get very little playing time) in order to get an adjusted team caught stealing percentage. Here's my list of teams to run on:

Florida Marlins 16.7%
Texas Rangers 18.2%
Colorado Rockies 21.9%
Chicago White Sox 21.9%
Atlanta Braves 22.2%
Los Angeles Angels 22.6%
Boston Red Sox 24.1%
New York Yankees 24.2%
San Diego Padres 25.0%

And here are the teams that project to have over 30% caught stealing:
Tampa Bay Rays 33.7%
Oakland Athletics 33.7%
San Francisco Giants 33.9%
Toronto Blue Jays 34.0%
New York Mets 34.1%
Detroit Tigers 34.1%
Milwaukee Brewers 34.7%
Minnesota Twins 35.6%
Kansas City Royals 38.3%
Houston Astros 41.0%
St. Louis Cardinals 42.5%
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.

On days that Joe Mauer doesn't start (he's still on the DL a couple more days) put your SB guys in against the Twins. singles are automatic doubles against Jose Morales (the AAA catcher up for the Twins) whom is starting about 1/2 the time.

I know that anytime I have a couple guys going up against Posada I am probably going to get a stolen base.
