BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-04-10 16:30:00 (link to chat)Seems to me, we're going to get inundated this year about how Ricky Henderson was a great base stealer, rather than a great player who stole bases.
(strupp from madison)
Amen... and to be fair, the game is *not* the same as it was when Rickey came in. One of the reasons Billyball worked (sort of) in 1980 and 1981 was that teams had gotten so lazy in terms of keeping up on their defense that having Wayne Gross or Dwayne Murphy steal home was doable. That's not so much the case these days, so what's possible with the running game is similarly limited. Nobody's going to take away the record held by the '76 A's any time soon. Nor should anybody try. (Christina Kahrl)
