Having a leadoff hitter that can set the table is very important for major league teams that are looking to put together a successful season. By setting the right tone from the start of a game, a team has a better chance to win.
It is not surprising that a number of franchises are looking to add a top leadoff hitter to their lineup for the 2013 season.
There are a number of options available via free agency or the trade market. Some of these players are at the elite level, while others will just put up decent numbers.
