SB Threats?

But those numbers are skewed because tejada spend time in Oakland. You'd imagine that the percentage might stay the same, but both SB and CS would increase. 71% is a pretty good ratio.

You cannot assume the ratio would stay consistent. When you have only attempted 70+ SBs over the course of 8 years you are going to steal quite a few bases just by surprise. Ratios can be very misleading when you're dealing with a sample size this small.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

To be brutally honest I haven't. Tejada running less in Baltimore makes no sense at all which is the reason for my question. I respect your opinion but see no sense whatsoever in your theory. Please feel free to expand on it because I'm obviously missing something.


Well, there's nothing really to expand on. A team has guys who run, guys who get on base, and guys who mash the ball. Sometimes teams like to divvy up these jobs, so they have one guy getting on base (and running), and another guy knocking him in.

It's just a theory; take it or leave it.
