Champs wilth only 12 steals

Post by Descent54 » Sat May 12, 2018 7:47 am

My Washington Senators just won the 2043 World Series in the MML. Not only did this team have a 27 game winning streak, it only stole 12 bases out of 15 attempts the entire season!

It is amazing to me how many teams attempt to steal without thinking of their success chances.If you are not succeedibg 75% of the time, you'd better do some adjusting. Outs are too precious to give away.

On one hand, if you're just running into outs, you're not helping yourself win. On the other, if you have fast runners but never attempt, you might be holding your team back.

Personally, I aim for somewhere around 75% success rate, but I don't get too worried until it gets below 70%.

And on the other hand if you put pressure on the defense by running the bases aggressively you can challenge weak arms and fielders with limited range...Depends on if you are a Whitey Herzog or a Bobby Cox disciple.

In my situation, having only 6 players with A speed, I had to be more conservative especially with many A catchers in the league. It was a necessity on my part.

Being a live long Cardinal fan, I remember well the Herzog's years here. Wasn't a fan of him though, because he liked to take credit for the success of the team. He could do no wrong. It was all the players fault for losses.

You don't need 75% to have the net-effect help your team win games. I don't usually have 75% success and my teams have done quite well.
