They are poor #1/#2 hitter's because they DON'T get on. OBP under .340 are terrible for top of the order hitter's and not one of these guys have a career OBP above .329.
Funny thing is you are going with the oldtimer's view of speedy slap hitter's at the top of the lineup over sabrmetricians preference for high OBP at the top.
