Baseball is won or lost on these margins. Maybe not precisely about pitcher hitting (although that is a piece of the puzzle currently in the NL, like it or not), but throughout any roster construction.
I'll concede that the DH position hits better as a whole than the P position, but I won't concede that the DH creates a more interesting level of roster construction. I think that the AL and NL are simply different and that both leagues will see their advantages and disadvantages.
