Hargove's Aggressiveness

My column on BP this week deals with the new aggressive baserunning style of Mariners manager Mike Hargrove. It turns out that as measured by my baserunning framework the Mariners were already a pretty good baserunning team last season (at least if you don't count stolen bases). I also take a quick look at run downs and was a little surprised that when a runner gets in a run down of any length (meaning more than 2 throws) he was put out 99% of the time in 2005.

What prompted the article were some questions from a reporter for The Oregonian which he summed up here.
