Amazing note in the Boston Globe this morning:
With five stolen bases, and just one home run (Kevin Youkilis), the Red Sox now have as many stolen bases as a team (26) as they have home runs.
Even more unbelievable: The Red Sox are tied with the league lead with a +22 stolen base differential and lead in stolen base percentage. Meanwhile, the Sox already lead the league in batting, on-base percentage and total bases. So the Sox are not only reaching base more than anyone else, they’re taking extra bases better than anyone else, as well.
I wonder if that’s ever happened before.
