Once you get past Lee and Beltre, there just aren't any game-changers left. On the other hand, if you shake a tree an old first baseman will fall out (most of whom aren't pictured here). You can make a case that Derrek Lee belongs on this list, but he's not the only one of his ilk who's looking for a job this winter. There's just no excuse for any American League team not having a decent DH next season, because there plenty of cheap-but-decent bats available.
