Joe Sheehan: Several teams need offense and these DHs are the best bets

The "it" trend for 2010 was embracing defense. With improved ways of measuring defensive performance, and a greater understanding of the relationship between fielding and pitching when it comes to run prevention, a number of teams emphasized finding and playing the best defensive players they could get their hands on. Some -- not all, but some -- of the falloff in run-scoring in 2010 was self-induced, as teams chose to play poor hitters for their perceived defensive value.
