Yep, 3 and 5 can be a carousel of Upton, Ohtani, La Stella, and I like the lefties in the 3 spot.

Trout and Rendon should be locks at 2 and 4, and those are the easiest decisions. Fletcher could arguably be replaced by Ohtani at leadoff, but not the way they're hitting now.

Fletcher is the perfect leadoff hitter with his remarkable ability to get on base. He isn't a power hitter but does have speed on the bases.

Analysis be damned, I LOVE Fletcher batting first. He's a pain in the ass to get out, and great at getting on base. By the end of that at bat, the pitcher likely has thrown more pitches than they want to, has a man on, and now has to face Trout (and Rendon and Ohtani). It seems like it must be just mentally exhausting.

Agreed, but leadoff should technically be one of your 3 best hitters overall, regardless of style. Normally, I'd say Ohtani is the team's 3rd best hitter; but Fletcher has disagreed so far. 

This offense can be scary good if they can find some protection for Fletch.

Fletcher is the best hitter ATM. l have always thought the OBP was most important for lead off hitter.
