The Chicago National League Ball Club

An objective look at the love of my life--the Chicago Cubs.


I took a look at the top base stealers in MLB so far and noticed two things.

1) Corey Patterson has stolen more bases than anyone in baseball. I'm not saying we made a mistake. I'm just saying he's the leader.

2) Juan Pierre ranks 7th. But that's not what's interesting. Amongst the top 30 base stealers, Pierre has a lower OBP than anyone. He also has less RBI's than anyone in the top 40. And amongst the top 25, only two players (Patterson being one) have drawn fewer walks than Pierre.

He's very fun to watch. He seems like a great guy. He is not getting the job done by any stretch of the imagination.
