Escobar and Fuld on 1st and 2nd. Speed on the bases, bottom of the ninth. When is the last time the Twins pulled off a double steal?

I do not know when the last time the Twins pulled off a double steal but the Escobar/Fuld situation above was not nor should be the time for a double steal.

That is unless there is a 99.9% chance of success. Isn't this the unsaid rap on Escobar, that his speed is only average? He's not really a stolen base threat.

I thought I remembered Mastroianni stealing 3rd with someone else stealing 2nd a couple years ago. Common sense says it was probably Revere, but I don't actually remember.
