Stolen Bases - new Random Stat 

Looky, looky! The 2nd new Random Stat this week! I can't believe it!!! After poking around with more fielding stats, I decided to go with an old stand-by: SB & SB% over the past 3 years. Nothing fancy, but it's nice to see the percentages next to the number of bases stolen. Only a couple of small things to comment on - DAMN Beltran is a great base stealer! I knew he was a great base stealer, but every time I see his percentages, I'm amazed. I think I heard that it's the highest percentage ever. EVER. And someone needs to call up Luis Castillo and tell him to stop trying to pretend he's a base stealer, cause he's not. He sucks. Everyone else is in the low to mid 70's.

- Addendum -
Since I'm posting a new Random Stat list, I'm appending the list mentioned in the above post right here.
