I'd say less than 10. The Cardinals don't run much and I doubt they want their 7 year, $120 million investment stealing bases.
If it does end up being less than 10, I don't know if it'll be for the reason you listed. Pujols has been the team leader in SBs twice in the last five seasons - and tied for second or third in two more of those seasons. This leads me to my point, which is that the Cardinals haven't had anyone since 2004 who has actually been adept at stealing bases. Back in '03, Renteria attempted 41 steals, and in '04 Renteria, Womack, and Reggie Sanders each attempted 25+ and the team as a whole was towards the top of the league in attempts.
I'd predict him to keep close to what he did last year - around 20-22 attempts, and around 15 SBs.
