Come on – Julio Lugo has been playing in the Major Leagues for 10 years; he certainly is not so thick-headed as to try to steal second base when a teammate is standing there and no double-steal signs have been put on.
And yet Lugo will do that. The only way to get him to stop is to boost skills and career numbers and then move up in the batting lineup, but even then there are problems."
