The Braves might be in favor of the DH:

Pitchers were 23-for-283 - that's a .081 clip, folks.


Foltynewicz, Newcome and Anabel Sanchez:

3/58; 2/45 & 1/42 = 6-for-145 - .041 with 98 Ks

Giving up a ton of ABs!

I hope not. Takes away some of the strategy of the game

What about talk to require a minimum of three batters for a relief pitcher. I get it, they want to cut down the game time but that just seems a bit extreme.

There are a limited number of pitchers on the roster so it's not like the manager doesn't have to take that into consideration.

What happens if the pitcher is hurt and cannot pitch to the minimum 3 batters? Do they force the club to put the pitcher on the DL just to show the injury was sufficient?

If they want to speed up the game then wouldn't adding a DH to the NL squad do the opposite?

This. However, it would workout nicely for the Cubs and Kyle Schwarber.

If they want to improve the game for the fans, the most important is to fire any broadcaster or writer for mlb who uses stats that we donít understand or care about like : launch angle, fip, exit velocity, wRc, etc. Itís the #1 thing driving fans away. Just stick to hits, rbi, batting average, era, strikeouts.

DH takes away strategy but adds offense, and I think fans enjoy high scoring games. Also, it's time for both leagues to play with the same rules. Although controversial, maybe not a bad idea to employ it.

Imagine if you will an NFL where in the NFC only a single extra point was permitted, while in the AFC the two point conversion was allowed.

In games between teams from each conferencre, the rule applicable for the home team would be used for that game.

In the Super Bowl the rules for the team that won the coin flip would be used in the first and fourth quarters and the other rules would be used in the second and third quarter.

Think about it. Is there anyone in their right mind, if such a scheme was adopted, who would not think it was created and approved by an idiot, or a rules committee populated by a majority of idiots.

The whole DH thing hasn’t made sense for forty odd years since it was instituted. If you raise your son to become an AL pitcher, you don’t allow him to touch a bat. He can then skip tee ball and get his first Tommy John operation before Little League. Fine.

NL pitchers will be culled from Little League shortstops who are clearly the best all around players on their team, whose talent in the batter’s box is gradually lost in college and the minor leagues where DHing is king.

Personally I would eliminate the DH from the AL, but adopting the DH in the NL is far better than the current system, I will concede.

Half the NBA shouldn’t have to play on an ice rink.

Marathon runners shouldn’t have to compete against smart cars at Indy.

How about a cross between golf and whack a mole where the hole is continually moving on the green, or where half the holes are suspended .10 feet off the ground and Tiger Woods Jr. could literally be a chip of the old block.

I'm not in favor of the DH in the the NL but I believe its inevitable. If they want more offense, then ban the damn shifts.

When I saw the new proposals, the only one that made no sense was giving a draft advantage to winning teams over losing teams, how does that help competitive balance?
