Who is the best base runner in baseball?

Jose Reyes, Mets SS......22%
Juan Pierre, Dodgers CF......15%
Ichiro Suzuki, Mariners CF......10%
Jacoby Ellsbury, Red Sox OF......8%
Chone Figgins, Angels 3B......7%

[Based on a survey of 449 MLB players]

Reyes was second in the majors with 56 steals; he was caught 15 times.... Among the top 15 vote getters, all were outfielders or middle infielders, except Figgins.... Ichiro has been caught stealing just 70 times in 385 career attempts.
