I think Trout is more dangerous as lead off if Pujols is batting third. Some of his singles he can beat out, but it leaves whoever's on first base while he's batting would be sacrificed. Trout getting on base sets the team's tone. Also, if Trout steals second base or gets to second base on a single, then he is less likely to get into a double play.

There is a hole that needs to be filled at the 2 spot. We need a Kendrick, Aybar, or Fleet Pete to produce at that spot. Also, I hope our catcher spot improves offensively.

As for the RBI stat... that matters if you're a #3 or #4, clean-up, hitter. Runs is what matters more if you're a table setter.
