He had 5 seasons where he had complete years in Montreal, his HIGHEST Runs total was 108 in any of those 5 years. His FIRST full season with Anaheim he gets 124 runs.....hhhmmmm

2 of those 5 years he had less than 110 rbi and another one of the seasons he had "only" 111 rbi. Then in his first season with anaheim again he has 126 rbi.

This is also when Vlad steals 30-40 bases a year and MCab would be lucky to get 5. Speed helps with run totals.

Yep and he never had less than 100 R, RBI in MTL except when he was injured. Plus last season with LAA, he failed to score 100 R... And he 'only' had 108 RBI.

FWIW, he had 30-40 steals for only two season in his career. You can reasonably expact about a dozen steals in his career.

Finally, Miggy is not a speed demon but he's no sloth either. If given the chance, he can steal a base or two. He hasn't run in his career but how do you know if he will be given the green light more often with less support? See Pujols...
