30-35/100-120? hitting anywhere from .280 to .320? something like that, he was a star in pittsburgh despite having his talent wasted on some forgettable pirates dynasties over there.

15 is what he was usually good for, at least until last year. That number works fine for me. The SBs are just gravy anyway.

its hard to expect too many stolen bases from anyone nowadays. In Sports Illustrated, it says stealing has been on a decline due to the fact that a caught stealing can ruin the chance for a big inning. Joe Sheehan of Baseball Prospectus says
If you're stealing at less than a 75 percent success rate,your better off never stealing at all.
Only 3 teams had above 75%, and the team that lead in steals, the Marlins, wasnt one of them.
