Having said that, I'm guessing the allowable CS% doesn't move that much, maybe between 65% and 75%.
Sure, the value of a steal for Team A might be different than for Team B. But I don't know of any studies that have gone through that kind of thing. Heck, I am sure a steal in Petco is more valuable than one in GABP because of the ballpark environment and how it alters run scoring. There are a lot of differing variables that could be at play.
