I agree with this, and if I could get this done I would do it.
I voted leadoff hitter. This team hit for enough power this season, but it lacked the ability to grind out runs versus top end pitchers. This is where I value a true leadoff hitter. The Reds can swing from the ankles a little too much for my liking. Gotta be able to play some small ball in October.
