Phil Wood's Take on the Stolen Base Controversy

The man makes a strong point.

It's amazing that so many fans seem to think that stealing bases when you're down by double digit runs is somehow breaking one of the game's unwritten rules. When you're up by a bunch you don't steal; when you're trying to come back - with 5 innings left to play - it's a calculated risk and nothing more.

The whole thing's worth a read. He disapproves of a lot of what Nyjer did, but not the stolen bases.
