Worst starting DH in the American League?

considering the point of a DH is someone that should be able to put up some big offensive numbers.. since they really dont do anything else..

who is the worst DH in the american league?

Eh... I was kidding...

Probably the DH for the Tigers then, that team stinks.

Wait a second.. What's that? The Tigers are in 1ST PLACE!??!

Nevermind.

well yea.. of course everyone agrees that the DH rule is the dumbest rule ever and that the AL is a fake league for insisting on using it..

but.. considering that they have this crappy rule implemented.. they have the ability to have players whose sole purpose are to be offensive machines.. and Im wondering who everything thinks is the worst at their job

Greg Norman for the Tigers, I mean, he's a golfer by trade, who does he think he is, Garth Brooks?

Yep. They should contract all teams added to the league since 1900.

The Braves might win more World Series titles that way.

DH Rules!!!

Tim Salmon and David segui have seen better days. Those two and whoever the Tigers use would top my list I suppose. but then again teams switch DHs a bunch. I mean Kenny Lofton makes an awful DH too
