Since Gardy is obviously confused as to what makes a good leadoff hitter (hint: see pitches, get on base for other hitters to get you in), I've composed this helpful cheat sheet.
List of People Who Would Be More Apt to Bat Leadoff Than Matt Tolbert
Emilio Navarro (propped up with a series of levers and pulleys)
An unoccupied batter's box
Carlos Gomez (but only just barely... that was a long, angering road I'd rather not go down again)
A Sony Aibo
American Idol winner Kris Allen
Most of the commenters at the Star Tribune's website
The gun toting corpse of Charlton Heston
That one guy on Lost... you know... the bald-ish guy, the mysterious guy with the shifty eyes... yeah, him
A sentient jack-in-the-box
Ordinary buttered toast
But is it scrappy buttered toast? Does it battle its tail off??
Lest you think I'm overly pessimistic, here another list.
Hitters Who Matt Tolbert Would Probably Be Better Than
Please, listen to reason. Scrappy, light-hitting infielders who strike out almost as often as they get on base do not in any way scream "leadoff hitter".
