you don't have to steal bases to win baseball games.
Today, Padres win 6-5. First run of the game came like this:
Roberts singles to right, steals second. Loretta moves him over on a groundball. Klesko knocks him in on another groundball.
So, yeah, you don't need stolen bases to win baseball games, but they certainly give a team a nice addition.
The Angels, Orioles, and White Sox are 2-4 in steals in the entire majors. Has turned out pretty nicely so far.
