Chicago Cubs may be forced to turn to the world’s greatest leadoff hitter

Even with the rumored addition of veteran Steven Souza Jr., the Cubs still lack an answer when it comes to the long-standing leadoff question. Since Dexter Fowler left for St. Louis after helping Chicago end a century-plus title drought, the team has been looking for a solution, trying an array of names as the table setter.

So far, really only two guys have found success in the role. The first, veteran Ben Zobrist, faces a future that is still very unclear moving forward. The two-time World Series champion missed most of the 2019 campaign while dealing with family issues off the field.
