When he swiped the bag last night, I was thinking, "RUN ROSSY! Wait, I don't think he has any stolen bases...ever..."
Ross playfully admitted that he thought about raising the second-base bag in the air after he completed the steal.
"I actually thought about it, I really did," Ross said. "But it was still a tight game and I've got to keep my professionalism. I was really excited. I was really happy."
“Mac’s got a ton in his career and I’m just jealous,” Ross said. “I need to catch him a little bit. He’s got like five or six a year. I have one in my career. I told Mike (Bourn) when I came in after the game, I’m coming for him.”

That was Ross' first career stolen base (4th attempt). If they were all that easy, he'd have tried it a long time ago

And Ross steals. I love it. Suck it, Philadelphia.
