I can't stand this BS when people say that they are meaningless. That's not true, Caught Steals are meaningless. Guys with high success rates are adding production, it's just that simple.
Like when Dee Gordon went 2-3 last night with a double and single. He stole 2nd after the single and stole 3rd after the double. Both time the bases were empty. That's just as good as going 2-3 with a triple and double.
