I love the stolen base, but I think Freel should be ordered to assume that he has the RED light unless told otherwise. In other words, Freel has lost the priviledge to try to steal whenever he feels like it. I agree that he's probably the worst baserunner the Reds have ever had.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
