Or more specifically...where have all the elite stolen base runners gone??? The league leaders in SB just don't put up the numbers like they used to. Looking back at the 70/80s the league champ was commonly stealing ~100 bases.
I figure it has to be one of three things...
1)Vince/others from that era where just that good/fast
2)Catchers have vastly improved
3)Stat-heads (who I love) found that strategy doesn't pay off ultimately.
What is it?
