I'd just call all things even, and call them all stolen bases and assume it all evens out in the end.
If it didn't matter why would guys even bother stealing?
That goes into the thinking. But most teams value playing the defenders where they want them, over trying to stop the stolen base. Defending against the stolen base means 3/4 of the infield is set up differently.
