The need for speed

Interesting statistical nugget from Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports:

Over the seven-year period that began in 2003, either Carl Crawford or Jacoby Ellsbury led the American League in stolen bases in all but one season.

In other news, the Yankees might be using defensively challenged Jesus Montero to catch next season. Those two guys might score 200+ runs and steal 75+ bases and give other teams fits.
