Danny Mac has been chattering about how Shildt wants the players moving on the base paths. Aren’t they already doing that poorly?

1st place in all of MLB in BsR since Shildt took over.

So no. They're doing it well.

A few things. 1) i meant “weren’t” past tense 2) sample size. But if they are actually improved (and I’m not saying they aren’t) 3) how so? 4) how so quickly?

Baserunning has been pretty good all year. First place in UBR.

Third in wSB and wGDP respectively since Shildt took over. wSB they are ranked 28th for the season. Ranked 30th under Matheny. So improvement there.

That's what I'd like to know. Did Oquendo hold him?

Shildt is putting the Cardinals in motion. In his first 15 games, he deployed the hit-and-run 19 times, and that doesn’t count the frequent instances in which he has started the runners to put pressure on the defense, get the infielders out of position or avoid a double play. Matheny, fired on July 14, used the hit-and-run only 38 times in his 93 games this season.

The Cardinals had a terrible record of stumbling around on steal attempts under Matheny during his six-plus seasons, ranking last among the 30 MLB teams with a success rate of 66.4 percent.

Shildt is more astute and discerning at picking spots to run; in his 16 games, the Cardinals have swiped 10 bases in 12 attempts (83.3 percent).
......
Before Shildt took over, the Cardinals were below-average in the BRR (Baserunning Runs) metric at minus-1.1 runs. In Shildt’s brief time in charge, the Cardinals have improved their baserunning enough to have moved into the plus side, at plus-1.1 BRR. And through his first 15 games, the team lost only three runners on base on unforced errors — a dramatic reduction of the careless baserunning under Matheny that angered so many fans.

Maybe its time for small ball again. I enjoy watching those games more than the K-or-HR fests.
