Dee Gordon is everything you’d ever want in a great lead-off hitter

At the top of any batting order in the game of baseball, your lead-off hitter must have two things: the ability to get on base to set up run scoring chances and tons of speed. Dee Gordon has both of those things for the Miami Marlins. In fact, he may just have more speed and a greater ability to simply hit the ball than anyone else in the majors right now. If you don’t know who...
