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]

FAST FACTS: Players couldn't vote for a teammate.... Rockies outfielder Willy Taveras, who finished with a big-league-high 68 steals, was eighth in the poll (3.4%).... 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.

This is an MLB poll from the October 6, 2008 issue of Sports Illustrated.
