I will give my top ten reasons why having the DH is best for the game of baseball:
10.) It keeps the game exciting for fans by having another power hitter in the lineup.
9.) It extends the careers of great hitters (like Tony Gwynn, Frank Thomas, and Paul Molitor) who can't manage the wear and tear of the long season due to age.
8.) Once the pitchers get to the Bigs, they suck at hitting and base running- (Chien Ming Wang)
7.) All of the top contenders have them. (BoSox, NYY, ANA)
6.) What's better? A sac bunt or a mile-long blast into the upper deck by Harold Baines.
5.) The DH is used in most professional leagues around the world and in all NCAA games.
4.) The DH position is used for injury recovering players to help get in game shape.
3.) The DH position is used to give players a partial day-off, giving them some rest while the other team is batting.
2.) The DH removes the "easy out" that a batting pitcher provides.
1.) Big Papi...need I say more?
