You know I should probably finish this up this week being that the 2008 season ends on Sunday which will make these lists out of date. But hey that also means it'll be time to work on my "famous" Bored Player Rankings which will just serve as a painful reminder of how bad the A's offense was this year.

God dammit. I've been using the Historic Win Shares spreadsheet from baseballgraphs.com and I think it's been compiled by multiple people as I now see that for 2005 they don't list anyone as a DH. In fact checking Hardball Times they did the same that year for some reason as Oritz is listed as a first baseman. And as I look further the spreadsheet doesn't list DHs for 2004 either and Ortiz had 25.1 Win Shares that season so also add that to the list.
