Now that MLB is in their annual Interleague series, I have to ask: Should the American League get rid of the Designated hitter, require their pitchers to bat? Or should the National League adopt the DH rule for their pitchers? I personally think it's not much a stress for a pitcher to bat and run the bases if they get on. Most of time they bunt to advance a runner, if a runner is on base.
Anyone surprised that 2 Chicago Cubs made the NL reserve team? Especially Bryan LaHair? I can see Starlin Castro making it, but maybe Alfonso Soriano should have made it instead. But I do respect Bryan's early season success, even if he hasn't kept it up.
In the National League
There's nothing more tenacious, than having to opt to take yiour Starting Pitcher out of
a game in the bottom of the 6th or Seventh Inning with the winning run at third, and
the insurance run at second. While he is pitching a no hitter. And his counterpart,
has allowed 9 hits, and 5 walks and is pitching a shutout, also.
In the American League, it doesn't matter, you can have a man who is a typically autistic
Metro Peorian, with batskills, make a good living, in the "Major Leagues" as a DH.
