Now that's an interesting idea. The obvious reason why you wouldn't want Votto on leadoff duty now is speed. His issues emanate from the knee so not a big base stealing or hit-and-run threat. But, I still like the idea from the OBP perspective. Jayson Werth in DC has been very successful as leadoff (we call him "leadoff Larry") with a similar profile as a hobbled JoVo.
But, also, I'm guessing Dusty won't be reading this thread.
