Stealing in More Ways Than One?

The White Sox don't steal many bases. This season, they swiped 67 bags, 25th in baseball and 75 fewer than the Rays, who led the league. But in Game 3, the White Sox turned from mashers into speedsters, stealing three bases -- their first three of the season. Asked if he was surprised by such baserunning, Tampa Manager Joe Maddon wondered if the White Sox were looking in at Chicago's signs.

""I don't know if they're peeking or not," he said. "They might be peeking in and getting our signs."

I've wondered the same thing about those teams that had unusual success at home this year - weren't the Sox one of them?

Now that's a skill I wish the Nats had--if only the Nats could look in at Washington's signs now and then!

1a, the Sox were very good at home, but the Rays were also excellent at home.
