David Pinto had this observation that made me laugh:

DHs Make History

Dan Johnson and Jason Dubois both played DH and batted ninth last night. That’s the first time both DH’s batted ninth in a game.

The point of the DH is to have a great offensive player in the lineup. If they’re going to bat ninth, they can’t be that great an offensive player. The pitcher can hit ninth. More DH’s should be like David Ortiz; player’s whose whole career is about hitting.
