 ESPN.com - Baserunning big part of Walker's greatness
Walker receives the least amount of credit for his baserunning, even though he is the best baserunner in the game.
As a hitter, Walker brings the same amount of aggression he does to baserunning and defense, but it's controlled aggression.
For as much damage as he can do with the bat, though, I still think Walker's baserunning is the part of his game I like the most.

Cobb liked to talk about his exploits, and even in his autobiography, when he states that he is writing it to dispel vicious rumors about him, it is clear that he revels in the image of him as a demon.
A consequence of Cobb's hell-bent baserunning style was repeated injuries to his legs, especially abrasions from sliding on rock-hard infields.
As a student of baserunning, Cobb did many things, some little, some big, that he felt gave him an advantage, for he felt that no edge was too small for him to exploit.

 The Baseball Analysts: Can Baserunning Be the New Moneyball Approach?
Two successful teams, the Los Angeles Angels of The O.C. and, to a lesser degree, the Chicago White Sox, have declared that part of their success is the ability to squeeze extra bases out of singles and doubles by taking the extra base.
If that's in operation here, it may mean that there's a little edge in aggressive baserunning "the market" of MLB teams currently undervalues and, therefore, makes it some opportunity for others willing to pursue it.
It may be that the alterations teams make to the Scamperball approach disadvantage them in minor ways we can't track through isolating baserunning: perhaps pitcher or infielder concentration, perhaps fielder positioning, or other things.

 Baseball Prospectus | Articles | How Parks Affect Baserunning
Before getting into whether or not a baserunning advantage is the result of a particular park, it’s important to first establish that parks do affect the baserunning in a consistent manner from year to year.
To determine if park factors for baserunning do exist, I’ll look at three typical baserunning situations where the runner is faced with the choice to take the extra base or not: a runner on first during a single, a runner on first during a double, and a runner on second during a single.
When creating the park factors, I’ll follow the lead of Keith Woolner’s analysis of catchers and the stolen base in Baseball Prospectus 2004; the consistency from year to year will be measured both by the number of attempts for the extra base (aggressiveness on the basepaths) and the success rate when attempting to take it.

 Notes: Baserunning a focus   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
WINTER HAVEN, Fla. -- Manager Eric Wedge had promised to put a greater emphasis on baserunning this Spring Training, and he hasn't backed away from that promise.
In the early days of camp, the skipper had his position players working closely with his coaching staff, particularly former Indians outfielder Rick Manning, on their baserunning skills.
Wedge is hoping that better baserunning leads to more opportunities to score runs, which also proved a problem with his inexperienced Indians last season.

 Dan Agonistes: Baserunning
While it probably is correlated with speed and therefore baserunning, the value of advancing in those scenarios is so questionable, and the opportunities to do so coupled with the difficulty of judging when a runner is in such a situation add it up to my conclusion that including those occasions makes little sense.
Florida did finish second in overall baserunning at +8.88 runs (not considering EqSBR) and were also the youngest team in terms of their position players at 25.82 years (weighted by plate appearances).
I also took a look at the differences between the leagues and it appears the NL is indeed the better baserunning league even after controlling for the poor baserunning of both designated hitters in the AL and pitchers in the NL.
