It's apparently okay to question the intelligence or dedication of baseball fans who enjoy the AL style of play, but it's browbeating to question someone's reasons for holding the opinion that the DH is unacceptable.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
