Why are certain Players trying to steal


Why are certain Players trying to steal

My last 2 games I've lost from players running into outs. I have not changed my strategies yet, M. Ramerez, A. Pujols, and J. Gonzalez, to name a few, have all tried to steal after getting on base! What's going on??

Re: Whr are certain Players trying to s

That is because your opponent had Kevin Youkilis a Non catcher catching, anyone will run on a non catcher - and although the success rate against a non Catcher is pretty darn high, it ain't 100%

All three of those guys Joe Mauer, Adrian Gonzalez, and Manny Ramirez are 2 Speeds and Gonzalez stole a base, so I guess a 2 Speed is about 33% successful against a Non Catcher

And Pujols is never gonna make base!

Re: Re: Whr are certain Players trying

It is higher than that, but could have been bad luck.

Re: Whr are certain Players trying

Thanks everyone. Guess he wanted Youk in there pretty bad!

Re: Re: Whr are certain Players trying

This box score illustrates why its a bad idea to have a non catcher catching.

After 39 games the Ferengi Profiteers had 3 SB, after 1 game with a non catcher against them on defense, they got 7 SB in a game.
