Mariners Want Betancourt to Run

John McLaren said so long ago that I don't have a link for it, that he wants his team to steal more bases this year, and one guy that he wants to steal a lot more, is Yuniesky Betancourt. Mac said that he thinks Yuni could be a 20 steal guy, but hasn't been much of a theif over the past few seasons. Last year he stole 5 bases in 9 attempts, which is down from the 11 he stole in 19 attempts back in 2006. This is what Yuni had to say about stealing 20 bases.

"That would be a good goal to achieve. I'm young and fresh in legs."
