Anybody think A-Rod will have 30 SB's this season?

A-Rod has 16 SB's so far, will he reach 30 by seasons end? Yes or No? your call.

Why not? He's got the speed, and he seems have the green light so far this season with no end in sight...

30 is a reasonable prediction +/- 5.

He is stealing bases because he isn't getting the RBI's....so he's making up for it whenever he gets on base.

Once he starts getting them runs in and feels a little more comfortable in at the plate(he is still pressing) he will slow down...but i think 25-30 is well within his range,if he can get 2 or 3 more before the break...he'll get 30.

Nah, why risk an injury especially in a lineup that has no trouble advancing baserunners. I think unfortunately his SB production will slow down.

Maybe not 30 exactly, but he'll be damn close. 25+ is definate if you ask me.

If A-Rod has 25-30 steals this season, will he be the undisputed #1 pick in fantasy baseball next season? We all know A-rod will get his 120 Runs, 40 HR's, 120 RBI's, and his .280-.300 BA. this season, bar an injury.

I think he'll get 30 even thought Torre doesn't really like him running that much.
