Stolen bases

on .

Rafael Furcal is 8-11 in stolen base attempts, tied for 4th in the National League, but most of those were against the Mets and Mike Piazza, who has a glass arm. Marcus Giles has 2 stolen bases. Chipper Jones, Andruw Jones, and Brian Jordan are the only other players on the team with a stolen base. This, as you can see, isn't very much. I'm surprised Furcal is as high as he is among the league leaders in this category, considering that he has a .296 OBP. This makes it appear that all across baseball that there haven't been many stolen bases. However, if the Braves continue to slug the ball the way they have in the past 2 series, they won't need to worry about stolen bases and small ball very much.
