Quote:
As far as specific situations go, the D-Backs love running early in the game. They’ve attempted 10 steals in the first inning this year, and 37 total in innings 1-5, with just 19 more coming in the second half of games and extra innings. At first, that struck me as a bit curious. After all, if a game is close late, advancing one base could be that much more crucial to scoring an important run. But these are the 2019 Arizona Diamondbacks, and it stands to reason that a careful team would consider a baserunner too valuable late in a game to risk losing.

They’re more consistent when it comes to particular counts they run in, attempting 20 steals in even counts, 19 in hitter-friendly counts, and 17 in pitcher-friendly counts. They have yet to be caught when running with the pitcher ahead in the count, probably because that situation yields a higher percentage of non-fastball offerings.


strangely enough the 2019 cardinals, currently, have an 80.8% stolen base success rate.


They won't run on Yadi!

Oh....wait.

What was it that LaRussa used to say?

"Play like you deserve the investment (trade) from ownership." time to play like that.

This one workout day could be the difference between winning and losing the division.

Wainwright has been scratched due to back spasms. Ponce de Leon will start in his place.
