Since runs are the name of the game, figure out what each extra base he got worked out to in extra runs and then subtract the runs cost by getting caught stealing.
In the end, all that work has been done and the point where it hurt is around a SB rate of 70% (it varies, but 70 is around the norm). He is above that, so his stolen bases are a benefit to overal runs which is the name of the game. I don't care if he steals 10 bases or 100. As long as he is doing it above a 70% rate, he is adding runs.
