With the way the Reds have been hitting of late, "manufacturing" runs can become really important. And so far, I've been fairly impressed with the way that they've been moving guys with steals. Through today, the Reds are 13/3 in stolen base attempts, which I believe to be a pretty damn good clip. In the NL Central it's tops thus far, the Cubs have 8(3 more as of today, but I'm not counting those).
Now, if we could just get our guys to push these runners across the plate, we'd really be in business. I don't know if it's a conscious effort by Narron to try to get things going, but if it is, I like what he's doing.
