Quote of the day

Base-stealing has fallen into limbo and the thrills that go with it are no more.  But it’ll return, as surely as I’m writing these words.

    What a great quote; a visionary one that hopefully will never stop ringing true, especially with players like Ichiro not getting caught. Once again I raced off to baseball reference and was surprised to see Ichiro further down the list of leaders in SB%. Jayson Werth is fourth all time. That just hammers home the reality of stealing a base being more than speed. http://www.baseball-reference.com/leaders/stolen_base_perc_career.shtml
