The Hardball Times takes a look at the worst leadoff hitters since 1957, and while they conclude nobody was worse than Ivan DeJesus with the Chicago Cubs in 1981, not surprisingly, Julio Lugo’s debut season in Boston wasn’t anything to crow about either.
Lugo was tied for 20th among the worst all-time, based on his OPS+ of just 65.
“This organization has Bill James on the payroll as a consultant, for crying out loud, and yet they persist with Julio Lugo and his .294 OBP in the leadoff slot for 82 games?” asks Steve Treder.
Just blame the parasite for that too.
