Good article from Baseball Prospectus about Billy's night.
Good point, I remember that play now. I guess my point is that we haven't seen Billy try to steal 3rd yet, and I honestly can only think of maybe 1 or 2 times in Dusty's tenure that a steal of 3rd was attempted. I think I remember 2 double steal attempts.. That is foggy memory, but it's a rare occurance.
I'd like to see Billy steal 3b more. Thanks for the link, will check it out.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
