They're the same, tec. But you're marginalizing the stolen bases differences between Trout and Cabrera. It's kinda like saying the guy who batted 10 for 30 isn't much less valuable than the guy who went 170 for 600.
I am marginalizing the differences between Trout and Cabrera, because they should be marginalized to be put in appropriate perspective.
Trout is stealing at 15% above the break-even point of 67%. In 39 attempts, that's a marginal value of 6 stolen bases above and beyond the break even point.
Six stolen bases is not significant.
Do you disagree?
