Would love to have a RH power bat to stick in left.
By DS do you mean Drew Stubbs or Dave Sappelt? I'm assuming you mean Stubbs since you mentioned speed. I don't think he will ever have the skills to bat lead-off, it would be nice though. I think he has the tools to be a 3/4/5 hitter though, assuming he cant get his plate discipline in check. Although, if he could learn how to lay down a bunt, that would go a long way towards developing into a lead-off guy.
Dave Sappelt on the other hand has potential as a lead-off guy down the road imo.
