Who will fill Revere's Shoes as lead off...

TORONTO - It seems that Troy Tulowitzki will be that guy.

When you think of a lead off batter, you think of two things, speed and on base percentage.

Of the two, getting on base is the number one requirement, especially when you have players with the hitting credentials of Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion in the 2, 3 and 4 spots.

Tulo struggled as a lead off hitter when he first arrived in Toronto last season, but I think he's settled in now and will be an excellent hitter in that role for the 2016 season.
