You can strike out a lot and still be a good lead off hitter. The Reds' problem is that Dusty Baker is an idiot. His lead off and 2 hitters for most of last year was Drew Stubbs (.277 OBP) and Zack Cozart (.288 OBP). If they would have just went with something like Brandon Phillips leading off and Todd Frazier or Ryan Ludwick batting 2nd in front of Votto and Bruce they would've been better.
Choo helps their offense but they could've improved their offense by getting two awful OBP guys out of the 1/2 spots so Votto and Bruce could hit with runners on more often.
Hell they could've done this. Trade Gregorious for Bauer and then go with this lineup.
