Mets Are 5-0 When Eric Young Jr. Steals A Base

Statistical analysts have been saying for years now that stolen bases are not only overvalued, but that caught stealing is a tremendous loss of value. The logic behind that statement seems pretty solid. A team only gets 27 outs to score runs, and getting caught stealing takes one of those precious few outs away.
