There is no comparison to be made here. Rickey Henderson, with his .274 BA in 150 games, is unmatched on the current roster. If you compare him to Coco Crisp (as a lead off hitter) he smokes Crisp and if you compare him to whoever the A’s throw in left next year it’s like comparing a pro with a high school player. This is a huge question mark in the 2015 season. It’s possible we’ll see Vogt or Moss out there or we may see a big trade bring another power hitter to the corner.
