I was struck by the fact that Angle and Reimold were in the top five considering the amount of playing time they had. If Luke Scott, another "turtle", and Vlady had their playing time reduced to an amount justified by their performance you might have seen Angle and Reimold at the top of the list. I also wonder what part of caught stealing percentage was for being picked off of base? It wasn't as bad in 2011 as it was in 2010 but it was nothing to be proud of. Just imagine the SB efficiency numbers if even half of those would have been eliminated.

I agree. I think the Orioles are in a solid position though to attempt a little bit more (while adding a little more risk ). If they can stay around 75% and steal 10-15 more bases it would be greatMatt P wrote:I would much rather have a high % with fewer attempts than a lower % with higher attempts.
yep and I am curious to see if andino attempts more.Matt P wrote:Yeah, I think it will go up as well. Having Chavez on the team from Opening Day will help.
