I just don't get what happened to the steals. He's still getting on base he's just not running.
This team has great power but terrible OBP. Not stealing is the right decision and I bet that edict came down from Buck. Aside from specific situations where you really need one run or perhaps when there are 2 outs and the hitter is down in the count so the risk is lower, I don't think Nate should be running very often, even though his success rate is high.
Might just be coincidence but early in the year when he was running all the time was the best our offense has been all year. Not to mention the individual players were doing much better. Chicken or the egg though.
