If you like the DH, it came about during his reign. Now I was too young then to remember the politics, as to whether he championed it or fought it. There were actually two separate leagues then with their own CEO/management, and even before the DH I think there were some rules differences (maybe a different balk rule?). So maybe the DH came about solely from AL leadership and Kuhn had nothing to do with it.
The owners had the reserve clause and the antitrust exemption and they weren't going to give that up without a knockdown drag-out legal and labor fight. So Kuhn was certainly the right man for the job from their point of view.
Has anyone mentioned Markakis? His speed was never elite but he was quick enough to hit double digit steals a few times. Elite hit, plus arm, glove, and power.
Seems like "5 Tool Player" usually means "Jack of all trades, master of none."
Much easier to pitch 300 innings a year when the other team has a pitcher, a Ray Oyler, and a Kiko Garcia in the lineup, and they just give you three outs a game with sacrifices and slapping the ball behind the runner to move him over.
