Take that Ellsbury...

The fact that Jayson Werth "stole for the cycle" last night is getting almost zero coverage compared to Jacoby Ellsbury stealing home a few weeks back is further proof of the media's East Coast Bias. Werth's effort culminated in a brilliant steal of home that was much less close than Ellsbury's. Also, Werth can say he is one a handful of people on this Planet that have seen Ryan Howard steal a base in a major league game (he's only done it 3 times). As others have speculated, I think the Art of Stealing Bases is making a comeback this year and I think it's good for the Game.
