Red Sox fans are very worried that Tek and V-Mart will struggle to gun down the speedy LAA Angels baserunners. They have reason to be concerned but as Angels blog points out, so do Angels fans:
Meanwhile, the Angels have only thrown out 23 percent of prospective base stealers. That’s mediocre.
In last year’s playoffs, the Angels’ small-ball approach probably hurt them more than helped them. The Red Sox are more selective with their aggressive running. When they go, they make sure they can make it.
Fear not Sox fans, everything is working out according to plan.
