A while ago, I posted about who is going to lead-off for the Cubs this year. There’s going to be a huge debate about this subject but my pick for lead-off has got to be Tyler Colvin. Here’s my reason:
His season was cut short because of the infamous injury so he didn’t get a chance to prove himself as well as he could. at . His On Base Percentage is decent at.316
Tyler got a lot of HR’s too at 20 which is great also. I don’t need to tell anyone the importance of the lead-off position, but Tyler’s young and he’s got the enthusiasm to send the right message to opposing teams. I mean I really think both Tyler and Starlin are going to take the reigns of the Cubs this year and run with it. Like I’ve said before, it’s a transition year for the club and who better to kick off the new year than the sophomore?
