McClendon isn't a "running" coach for the most part. The most annoying thing about McClendon's running tactics is that he never lets guys take off early in the count. By the time he starts thinking about a steal, the hitters are in a protect count where they either foul it off or strike out.
I don't know if Lawton will have the "always green" light to run or not. If I were to guess, I'd say no. Our SB leaders for the past few years have been under 20 steals. Redman could never get on base enough to steal, though. I'd love to see them run more, but lord knows they'd just run into more outs.
I don't know anything about how Seattle runs other than Ichiro always taking off, and this Reed kid is apparently pretty speedy. I could see him getting quite a few steals much like how Castillo/Pierre do it in Florida.
