So I just saw that David “Big Papi” Ortiz is now #1 in lifetime hits by a DH.
UD SP Big Papi
I got no beef with Papi, in fact I like him a great deal. He is an upbeat larger than life personaility that is good for the game.

My beef is with career DHs and celebrating DH accomplishments.

Call me old school but I don’t like players designated DH. I like when they use it as a way to give position plays a half a day off, or rotate guys between outfield, first and DH. I just can’t get to excited about a ball player that just hits.
