Put him 7th.
He has a career SB sucess rate od 82 percent. Last year it was 81 percent. Dude was caught stealing 37 times last year.
If he is going to attempt 40-50 SBs a season inthe bigs, sure let him lead off (assuming his OBP is good enough). If he's going to attempt 100 a year, I'd rather he did it lower in the lineup.
Especially if the Reds somehow extend Choo.
