Terry Mulholland, like Rickey Henderson, is the type of veteran that a playoff team, and only a playoff team, should sign. During the regular season, things like stealing bases don’t matter that much, simply because you don’t need to win every game. That’s the nature of a 162 game schedule. However, in the playoffs, stealing bases can become a necessity (especially, if you are down in the bottom of the ninth in the game that will eliminate your team). Rickey Henderson gets on base and steals bases. Terry Mulholland can keep people off base (sometimes), but more importantly the number one pitcher at preventing bases from being stolen.
As a sabermetrician, I don’t usually have time for the stolen base, but Molholland belongs in the Braves or Yankees bullpen, not in the Pirates starting rotation simply because he prevents it.
