This year? 6 million.

From what I read in the media, he won't have the opportunity because he won't get on base.

6 million nice. Just like someone who said Konerko could have 5,000 home runs. :smile:

He's got 26 bases in 44 games. He's on pace for 95 bases if I did my math correctly, which isn't my best area. So, not trusting "on pace" figures I'd say 75-80 in my humble opinion.

He'll break Rudy Law's record of 77.

I heard the last time someone stole four bases in a game, twice, was Henderson in the early '90s. I think Pods will have at least one more four SB game and possibly two or three. I looked for the record in that respect, but came up empty. I'm sure it's held by Henderson with Brock and Wills close behind.

80 in the season.

12 in the playoffs/WS

IF HEALTHY 90-95 easy. The likely hood of being healthy that season running, not great.

I'd say somewhere in the 80's so not to put hopes way too high. I think he has the potential to get 107 or so.

i agree, i don't like on-pace statistics. While my 6 million figure may be a touch on the high side, i'd say the figure depends on the playoff situation.

Let's say the sox are up with a month to go... there's no need to risk a hammy injury. Sure, keep him sharp, and have him steal bases some, but he doesn't need to be playing every day, and when he is playing doesn't need to be stealing every base.

Now, if it's a close race, I could see him approaching the 90 base mark.

He will get the same amount of stolen bases as the Sox will have wins...

99.

I looked for the record in that respect, but came up empty. I'm sure it's held by Henderson with Brock and Wills close behind.

Also, I heard that Tony Womack did that in back-to-back games the same week, which is pretty odd considering that it hasn't been done in over a decade.

I'd say Pods challenges 100 this year barring injury.

And yes, I was the one who said Konerko would have 5,000 homers if he could just wait a split second more on those inside pitches... while it may be on the high end of the spectrum, in the games that I've seen, he's pulled way too many balls 400 ft into the LF foul seats.

In the ballpark (pun not intended) of 100 SB. When it warms up even more, I see him stealing at an even faster rate.

Actually, he's only played in 37 games this year. Five were right at a time when he missed a few due to the groin injury. Assuming we add in those two days off for regular rest then he's stolen 26 bases in 39 games, which, over the course of 118 more games is 78. Add that to the first 26 and he's on pace for 104.

Alright, I just like playing with numbers. He'll probably suffer a couple minor injuries and stuff, so I'd put him at about 90, give or take. That's assuming opposing pitchers don't stop walking him at the rate he's been getting walked, which seems unusually high to me right now. He's on pace to walk 80+ times and his career high is 58. We'll see.

My guess says anywhere from 75 to 100 thefts. On the other hand, my math (which is almost definitely wrong) shows:

Pods has 26 steals in 32 attempts (.813) over 44 team games played. Now, supposing the team plays 162 games, he will attempt 118 thefts, and at .813, he will steal about 96 bases. Of course, that's an average and probably not the actual outcome. But then again, I have no idea what I'm talking about.

EDIT (2055, 5/23): I just thought of something. NO WAY is Pods getting caught 22 times. I'd take 100-105 steals in 118 attempts.

About 189. Give or take a few.
