Matt Joyce batting first

It's spring training, so nothing matters (as opposed to when nothing matters just generally), but it's worth noting that Matt Joyce has a career .341 OBP, to Rajai Davis' .314. Now, that's with Joyce not leading off most of his career, and he describes it being a tough thing to do, something that doesn't make him as comfortable as hitting lower in the lineup, so that's a relevant factor, but is it 27 points of OBP relevant? Is it "he'll figure out how to hit in that spot by hitting in that spot" relevant? This is why Bob Melvin gets the big bucks and I get a blog.
