Eric Young Jr. and the need for speed

Over the past two seasons, the Mets got a healthy helping of Eric Young Jr. in the lineup, as he played in 191 games.

The logic behind that statement seems pretty solid. A team only gets 27 outs to score runs, and getting caught stealing takes one of those precious few outs away.
