Either way, Arizona does prefer that Justin develop his power before trying to steal 30 bases. They want him to start running this year but it'll take time before Justin can become an effective base stealer when he didn't really run at all in the minors. I think he's more likely to hit 40 homers with a .300+ average than going 30/30, his power is ridiculous. It wouldn't surprise me if Arizona doesn't have him go any higher than 20 SB because the D'Backs don't just let their guys run wild on the basepaths, they've been in the NL's bottom five for CS in every season since Melvin arrived.

Are you kidding me? Justin in his Senior year in H.S. ran a 6.2 in the 60 yard dash, the fastest ever recorded in the Perfect Innings Games showcase. He may not be as good of a base stealer as BJ is at the moment, but Justin doesn't lack any speed at all. He easily can steal 30+ in his prime.
