I'll take an educated guess with Sammy. He used to steal quite a few back in the day.

I can't think of anyone who would be very close to Sammy.

Guessing the top 5 SB leaders in the 90s:
1. Sammy
2. Ryno
3. Shawon
Dunston and Sandberg gotta be close. Then... how many years was McRae on the team? How about the 1 Dog? Prolly only a couple years played for each. I don't want to guess Grace. Young was 2000 and 2001? So...
4. McRae
5. Johnson

Sammy has to be number one and i would think McRae would be number 2. even though he was only there a few years he put up big totals for those years.

I don't think McRae was around long enough to be #2. I would put Ryno there and then say it drops off quickly after that. They just didn't run much.

That's what I was thinking about McRae. It does seem like he had around 40 a couple times though. I just couldn't remember exactly how long he was with the Cubs. Wasn't Dunston with them pretty much all of the 90's except the last couple? He had a couple around 30 and then always seemed to be in the mid teens as I recall.

Sammy had a couple 30/30 seasons during the 90's.

Somewhere around here this is a link to the trivia game about opening day Cubs lineups from 1991 thru last year. Having done that so many times... pretty sure McRae and Johnson each had 2 years as starting CF'ers

Sammy came up scrawny, fast, pretty good defense and pretty good arm. (According to Strato, A basestealer, 2 (-3) RF.) Bulked up, hit 5000 hr's, became a statue on defense and on the occasion the ball was hit close enough to him, he routinely loaded up and tried to throw the ball through the screen.
I recall cringing at basehits to RF with a runner on 2nd. "Just get the ball to 2nd, Sammy. PLEASE Sammy. Nope. That throw is ten feet above the catcher."
