You're right about the steals. I've been racking my mind trying to stay as solid in the other categories while helping myself in steals. But if you think about it, when a stat like OPS counts, steals become a little less important. For instance, Jeff Kent is just as valuable or more valuable than Soriano since Soriano's OPS was like .870, and Kents is around a 1.000, thus making up for the steals difference.
I'm hoping Damon can steal more than 31, Dunn steals more from the leadoff spot, and Giles does his 20.
