Earlier today after driving the litter to their respective schools, I began thinking about the Reds leadoff options for 2007. Quickly I transitioned into the best leadoff hitters of my lifetime. Everyone pretty much acknowledges Rickey Henderson is the greatest leadoff hitter of the past 20-75 years. Who follows him on the list?
I'm a little jaded on my 2nd choice, as he was my favorite ballplayer in the eighties. I was surprised who I had in spots 3-5, to be honest.
Who makes your top 5 leadoff hitters of the past thirty years, and why?
