Actually, Patterson is a pretty terrible on base guy as well. I think he is best suited for about the number 6 spot due to his inability to draw a walk.
You are right about Dusty not running much, although if Patterson is 100% I don't think he'll be held back if the situation is right. I see him stealing around 15 this year if he plays the whole year, and I see Lee stealing about 15 as well.
