Not sure how Barrett gets on this list and not Jody Davis, who had a few great years on the north side, and threw out baserunners at a record pace--89 caught stealing in '86, still I think an all time record, and more than the Cubs even attempt themselves in a season these days. He also threw out 48% of baserunners that year. In contrast, Contreras has one of the better arms among catchers today, and his career best is 37%.
