The Angels may have become more patient at the plate, but they're still their usually aggressive selves on the basepaths. They finished third in the American League in stolen bases with 148, trailing Tampa Bay (194) and Texas (149), but their total this year was 21 more than a season ago, when they finished second in the AL. Figgins (pictured) led the Angels, who had six players in double figures, with 42 steals. On the flip side, the Angels led the American League in caught stealing, getting nabbed 63 times. But the Angels' team speed will be a major concern for the Red Sox, given that Los Angeles's strength plays into a Boston weakness. Red Sox catchers Jason Varitek and Victor Martinez combined to throw out just 18 of 125 runners attempting to steal.
