    Tim I was thinking abut this. Is there anyway it can be researched the swing between team stolen base percentage and percentage allowed? We had to be one of the worst in the last 50 years this past season.

    I like how Santos swings the bat. He does not get fooled, takes good swings. He acctually looked decent the other night at secondbase.
