Question of the Day, 7 Feburary 2007.

I can't fight this feeling anymore...and I don't know what I started fightin for...

So I'm pretty cool, and I remember Billy Hatcher. Maybe you do too. In any event, Hatcher was the last Red Sox player to steal home. (If that's incorrect, a free fake cookie to anyone who can link to proof of my error.)

Who will be the next? Obvious answers might be Jacoby Ellsbury, Coco Crisp, or Julio Lugo. But keep in mind, other than some leg speed, a player must have an acute awareness of a pitcher's delivery speed and probably must be pretty much ignored at 3B in order to accomplish the feat. Some players will try to score in any situation, even when the runner ahead of them has already been tagged out at home Bonus points to anyone who provides a story about how their plate thief turned the trick.
