I'm loving the dingers but where are the steals? Not getting the chance to run or just no green light?

Well two main reasons. He is only just a few weeks back from the DL. Give him a little time to get up and running again. He is also hitting 3rd in front of Pena who has been pretty hot with the bat, so no need to take the bat out of Pena's hands with 2 outs and a runner on base.

I figured a benching (on my team) would get him going. What's up with the lack of steals (other than lack of opportunity)?

He seems to be 100% in his running game, so it's odd he isn't stealing. I mean, he has only even tried once I think and got caught so he must not be getting the light

The Rays haven't been stealing Delmon either. Is the coach really conservative on basepaths?

In a non-keeper, I'm wondering how much value BJ has for the rest of the year.

His batting average is regressing as many had expected, and he's not stealing for whatever reason (one reason probably being he hasn't been on base much lately). He's still swinging for the fences though, hitting 6 homers in the last 2 weeks.

He was just caught stealing :~(

Since being off the dl, 2 steal attempts and caught both times.
