Not so Fast.....

While Michael Bourn has been catching everyone's eye with his impressive 3 steals in 2 games, it's important to remember who he is doing it against. The Padres, & in particular Jake Peavy & Chris Young, are easy targets for any base stealer worth their weight. Everyone may be projecting 75 SBs this year for him based on these first 2 games, but don't get caught up in the hype just yet. The most important aspect of his performance so far is that he has shown patience at the plate and was able to get on base against two of the NL's best pitchers.
