If a left handed pitcher takes a long time delivering the ball on a pick-off attempt you might want to try stealing second off the pitcher's first move. That is, attempting a steal as soon as the pitcher lifts his front leg. If he throws to first, the first baseman still has to make a quick exchange and a good throw to second to get you out. If he throws home, you should have an easy steal since you got an outstanding jump.
