I liked what author Jared Diamond (Germs, Guns, and Steel; How Civilizations Collapse) said: "If there isn't any baseball, the American people will know it's because the billionaires and millionaires couldn't agree."
I'm on the fence though, at least if what I've heard about the universal DH is true. Baseball is better tha no baseball but NL baseball is better than AL baseball.
No way bud! I get the purist factor in the NL with pitchers batting. But in the modern age where everything is faster and bigger, keep your pitcher safe and get him out of the strike zone!!!!
Do you really think I want to watch Dave Stewart bat for the Oakland A's if there was no DH in the AL?
Give me big Dave Parker or Don Baylor instead.
NL lovers I respect, but give me a break man.
Lay down a bunt? Pinch hit? Cool, baseball is like chess. I get it.
But give me David Ortiz, Edgar Martinez, Paul Molitor or Frank Thomas any day over some frigging pitcher. WEAK!!!
AMERICAN LEAGUE AND THE OAKLAND A'S FOREVER!
Go all the way, platoon baseball!
