Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is Byron Buxton (snicker). He also has 1 steal, and is hitting an unfathomable .109, with a 46.6 K%.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is a guy who cashed in big in free agency. Dexter Fowler is hitting below the Mendoza Line and has 1 steal.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is Javier Baez. He's bouncing around all over the infield, and still striking out at a high rate. He has zero steals so far this season.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is former Braves prospect Mallex Smith. A legitimate 80 speed guy coming up, he just missed it for this question, with 3 steals.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Also with 3 steals, our next incorrect is Mookie Betts. If he hadn't missed time right after opening day, he might have made it.

Our next incorrect is confirmed juicer Starling Marte. He swiped 2 bags before getting popped with an 80-game suspension.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is another hyped prospect who's having trouble adjusting to big-league pitching. Tim Anderson is hitting .179 and has 1 steal.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is Wil Myers, who's trying to become Paul Goldschmidt-lite, going 28/28 last year. He's hitting a robust .354 in the early going, but only has 1 steal so far.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our final incorrect was played by yours truly. Man, does this make me salty. Trea Turner stole 3 bases in his team's first 5 games, then the dreaded April Hammy bug bit him. He even returned in time to play 3 more games before the cutoff for this question, but with no more steals. He even would have aced! My picks run bad, literally.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

This question's SHEEP answer is worth 6 points. Dee Gordon cut it close, but he stole his 4th base Saturday and became correct for this question.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next two corrects are Reds teammates, and worth 5 points each. Billy Hamilton's speed is renowned, as he leads MLB with 9 swipes (and only 1 CS).

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our other 5-point correct is yet another former Braves prospect, Jose Peraza. He has 6 steals on the young season.

Our next correct is worth 4 points. Jose Altuve is 2nd in MLB with 7 steals, and has yet to be caught stealing.

That's what a little 3-steal game two Fridays ago will do for you! Jonathan Villar has 4 steals on the season.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next ace also barely made it with exactly 4 steals. Kevin Kiermaier is finally getting recognition for being one of the better all-around outfielders in the game.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next ace also made it with 4 steals. Paul Goldschmidt is a pretty fantastic all-around first baseman, and a rare source of steals from the 1B position.

You suspected correctly! Our final ace is Goldy's teammate, Chris Owings. He has 4 steals on the season.
