    National League pitchers cannot pitch in the American League. At least not in their first year or so in the league. In the NL the 8th and 9th batter are as close as you can get to automatic outs. In the Yankee lineup the 9th batter (Melky C.) has the same effect as presenting two leadoff batters. I hate the DH but it is what it is.

    I think Bradon Webb, Jake Peavy, Carlos Zambrano, Roy Oswalt, Cole Hammels ect ect would do just fine in the AL. Good Pitching is Good pitching. Would there stats be slightly inflated compared to the NL, probably, but they'd still be at the top of the AL.

    He's a very good player. I don't know what you expected of him.

    He's on pace for 112 runs 22 HR 77 RBI and 61 SB this year. I'll take that from a SS anyday.
