Just looking over some of the great base stealing seasons so not in any way official. Plus I couldn't look at any of the turn of the century guys since SB weren't tracked real well then.
Rickey had 11 straight games (18 SB in 11 games) in 1983 and 9 straight in 1980. I didn't see anyone else who made it to nine after looking at almost every 80+ SB season in the modern era. There were about a dozen 7-game streaks I saw, and maybe 4 or 5 8-game streaks.
wow, 11 straight games, thats pretty sick, 18 in 11 is even sicker! the thing about it is, you have to get on base first, so thats step one. and then the whole world knows youre gonna try and steal so u hafta get a great jump and have blazing speed. stolen bases are a lost art and there are only a few truly elite guys left in the game. crawford has to be considered one, along with reyes but after that, there arent too many. jacoby should prolly be mentioned in the elite too
