Put'em in the #1 hole.

Leadoff Hitters.
Are they really that important?  Must the lanky slap-hittin speedster fill the position?  Or should it be the guy with the best (pick your poison) AVG, OBP, SB, walk rate, friendly face, someone who works the count, disrupts pitchers while on the basepaths, ground ball hitter, fly ball hitter....

I am no genius on the matter, and this did not enlighten me.  This here was helpful but made the matter more complex.  And then I learn that we did this last year.  So what's up with the leadoff spot?  Is it some big myth made up in little league?  Or is there a science behind choosing the right guy?

More importantly who slides into the hole in spring training?
Do we let multiple guys play in our hole?
Do we allow a newbie into our hole or go to someone with a little more experience?
Do these questions sound oddly gay?    

Lets here who you want leading off for the Reds.
