Well that formatting stunk this is a little better:
Sorry for the formatting but, I wasn't going to put much effort into it.

Sandberg 924 3897 94
Dunston 646 2489 90

Surprising that Lance Johnson doesn't make the list. I need to look him up...

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."


So, you go with "Strato", huh? We just called it Strat. Do you have the computer version or the old style board and cards?

I looked up Lance Johnson. He didn't steal as much as I thought. In parts of three seasons with the Cubs (97 to 99) he stole 28 bases as a Cub. So, he doesn't make the top 5. But he should be about #7.

I was sure the answer was Jody Davis, before I remembered that he was gone after '88.

Yeah, when I put Minimum PA to 0 Lance shows up at 8 with 28, Doug Dascenzo falls in at 6 with 35 and Ced Landrum is at 9 with 27.

I've done both. My first set was '84. I bought it in spring of '86 and they had to dig out a leftover, but I made it clear I wanted '84, not '85. I did the computer game in a pretty cool league that had 30 teams and full minor leagues. But then I (My wife) decided I had real life things (Children?) to take care of. Whatevs.

I heard Campana is so fast he reversed the rotation of the Earth ala Superman and stole 40 in the 90's.

I'm calling shenanigans. Everyone knows you can only travel forward in space time.

My first teams were 1965. I still have some of them. Mays was so awesome... that was his 52(?) HR year. Got the computer version of the game sometime in the mid 1990's. It worked with Windows 3.1 but when I upgraded computers and Operating systems, it eventually stopped working and I never sought out upgraded versions of the game. Loved setting it to automatic season and watching it rip through a whole year... I have a lot of the Old Timer Teams since I am one.
