Excitement at the Top

Few things in baseball are as exciting as watching a pair of speedsters like B.J. Upton and Carl Crawford on a double steal, which they perfectly executed in the third.

Of note, Upton’s steal gave him 30 on the season, which makes Crawford and Upton the fifth set of teammates all-time to reach 30 steals by the All-Star Break.   Delino DeShields (33) and Marquis Grissom (45) were the last pair to accomplish the feat when they did it for the Montreal Expos in 1992.

Can’t teach speed. These guys have been quite impressive with their wheels, and with BJ starting to show up at the plate there should be some serious offensive explosions soon to come.
