Over the hill but not quite over the hump

Good? Bad? Everybody has a designated opinion on DH
On Opening Day, June 1, 40 years ago, the New York Yankees Ron Blomberg appeared as the Major League Baseball’s first designated hitter against the California Angels at Yankee Stadium in New York.
The designated hitter role has suited David Ortiz just fine. The Boston Red Sox’s slugger just recently passed Harold Baines as the all-time hits leader at the position. Ortiz, 37, is making $14 million this season just to swing his bat.
Paul Molitor played 1,174 games as a DH in his 21 seasons, about 43 percent of his total, and he was an overwhelming first-ballot selection into the Hall of Fame.
