Red Sox vs. Angles – speed on the base paths

Much has been made of the Angels’ running game and the Sox’ inability to throw out runners.  Here’s a graphic comparing the base stealers on both teams.  While these two teams have similar stolen base totals, the Red Sox are much more dependent on one player – Jacoby Ellsbury – while the Angles have a number of players who can wreak havoc on the base paths.

    Damester, please come up with a fancy graphic for how the Sox are coming back from being down 0-2. Maybe something showing Big Papi actually making contact while removing a syring, with the use of a word cloud, of course.
