Please practice your catching, House in Orioles Talk Posted August 20, 2007 And yet, House is throwing out runners at a decent rate. Norfolk opponents have (rightly) challenged a guy with a supposedly weak arm, and House has responded pretty well.If House's CS% of .231 were extrapolated over a full season**, that would rank him ahead of Pierzynski, Estrada, Barrett and Kendall - and just behind Varitek and Posada. http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/stats/fielding?groupId=9&season=2007&seasonType=2&split=78&sortColumn=catcherCaughtStealingPct **Two caveats: 1.) nobody is advocating that he become an everyday catcher; 2.) assume that Migrant Redbird's .231 is correct. Two more caveats: 1. Assumes that major league runners would be no more successful than minor league runners if they challenged House; 2. At what rate would they attempt to steal? I don't claim to have anwers. Presumabaly major league runners are better, but the pitchers also should be better at holding them on.
