ALL-TIME PLAYER RANKINGS
Was made for the DH; great SLG and OBP numbers; MVP and batting title.
Could rate in Top 20 at 3B, but played far more at DH. Only DH with 3,000 hits, HOF selection.
A pure RH hitter with extra-base power. Has a good chance at HOF, remains to be seen what voters will think.
Rates better here than he would in RF; a complete player when he first came up. Sort of Frank Robinson lite.
Best LH designated hitter; mediocre right fielder, added 1000+ hits in DH role.
Best pure power hitter to DH, Ortiz would not rank in Top 20 at 1B, has chance to inch up here.
Was a good OF but when he went to AL and became a DH he had a nice productive stretch, mostly for Halos.
The first player to make DH his regular spot, McRae was a doubles hitter perfectly suited for Royals turf.
Catcher & OFer who ended uo playing DH because of the pop in his bat. Stayed healthy year after year.
Former 1Bman moved to DH after switching leagues to Cleveland. Great eye, home run power.
