Lou Piniella mentioned that his leadoff man might be different this year and some names have surfaced since. Ryan Theriot, Kosuke Fukudome, Aaron Miles and Joey Gathright have all been mentioned. Pardon me for sharing, but don’t you have to actually be a starter to be a leadoff man? It seems to me that the only starter in that mix right now is Theriot. I’m not sure who will be leading off this year, but I know one thing: If Gathright and his career .328 OBP is the answer, I don’t wanna know the question.
