Something along the lines of average number of bases advanced per on-base opportunity? Removing HRs since trotting around the bases isn't hard. Also BBs.
I realize its dependent on the hitters behind you, but I would think that eventually, better base runners would advance more bases than lesser base runners.
there's a bases aquired per plate appearance.
BPA--Bases per plate appearance. The formula is (TB+BB+HBP+SB-CS-GIDP)/(AB+BB+HBP+SF)
