Rules Question, or interpretaion of ruling.

There is no DLD for  the day, so I will waste your time with a question.  The Cleveland Indians performed a triple steal.  Now I have an issue with this being ruled a stolen base, and even more wondering 1) Why would you do the 3rd to 1st with the bases loaded down by 5 runs, and 2) Why in the hell would the runner on 1st get picked off, he wasn't going anywhere. In this instance, it seems like it should be a fielders choice. Why would you need to get in a pickle, run the picked off runner to 2nd base, there is already a runner there, so someone would be out.  Stupidity abound.

 

With Ben Francisco batting, White Sox pitcher Ehren Wasserman faked a throw to third and threw to first, trapping Carroll off the bag.

When Carroll briefly got caught in pickle, Dellucci broke home. First baseman Paul Konerko's throw to catcher Toby Hall was in the dirt, allowing Dellucci to score.

Official scorer Chuck Murr credited all three runners with stolen bases.
