CF/Leadoff

I am personally not a guy who obesses about the leadoff slot--but I do know that people put a lot of weight into it.

I am also probably one of the few Cardinal fans who actually kinda likes Skip Schumaker. I know he has limits, and that he's 28. However, I do feel confident that a combination of he and Brian Barton can do at least an adequate job of playing CF and manning the leadoff slot in the lineup. Have I totally lost it?

In over 1000 AAA at-bats Skip is at .298/.351/409/.760. In his 255 major league at-bats hes at .294/331/400/.731.

Again, I'm not saying they will be all-stars--or that Skip is a great player by himself. However, given the proper LaRussa favorite platoon splits can't they be league average? My question is--what would be an adequate statistical line from our CF combo (if it is those two).

My thoughts---.275/.340/.410/.750--is this good enough? Is this an attainable number for Barton/Skip to reach? Just wonderin.
