Oddly I expected Milwaukee to be near the bottom of the league in steals but they are in the upper half. Perhaps we'll start to see him running more if he's getting on base at a better clip.

Over 1/3 of those come from Braun stealing bases in random situations. They have been very reluctant to steal from the top of the order so far. Maybe they'll change their philosophy at some point this season and let Escobar run, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. If they keep the same guy in the #2 spot for consistent span of time, we should be able to get a very good read on how much Escobar will run for the rest of the year.
