A strange Cardinals streak

NEW YORK -- The Cardinals have stolen more bases this year than the Cubs or the Braves. They've stolen more bases this year than the Tigers.

They had 35 steals in 96 games entering play Wednesday, and while that's not a lot, it's a normal number.

This isn't: The Cardinals haven't stolen a single base since June 9. Entering Wednesday, they'd gone 32 games since Tyler Greene stole a base in the fifth inning against the Astros.

According to research through baseball-reference.com, that's already the longest streak in the big leagues since 1977, when the Indians went 35 games without a steal. It's the longest streak by a Cardinals team since the 1950s.

"I don't want that record," manager Tony La Russa said Wednesday.

The Cardinals have gone 12-20 during their steal-less streak, but it's hard to blame the record on the lack of steals. If anything, the lack of steals probably goes along with a lack of runners on base. The Cardinals have attempted nine steals during the streak, getting thrown out each time.
