I have been thinking about things Lou said. One time he was interviewed during one of the Whitey Ball games in the 80's. With Coleman, Smith and McGee running wild he was naturally asked about stealing bases. He said he wasn't the fastest man in the game but he had the desire. His sliding leg from his hip to his knee was one giant bruise from all the sliding he did. It took a couple of months after the season was over for it to heal. He went on to say a player has to accept that his legs are going to hurt every single day. He finalized by saying not every player is willing to do it. Not every fast runner CAN do it and that's fine. It doesn't make him a bad guy not everyone can hold up to the punishment of a 162 game season and steal all those bases.
