    It's Charlie Finley's middle finger to baseball. He correctly read that the stupid people outnumber smart people and it would be on balance popular. c.f. the shootout.

    Little by little, everything of beauty is dumbed down. The Presidency gives way to Dump, the evening news gives way to Fox, baseball gives way to the DH. The common man is ferociously indignant with what he cannot understand and has to grind it into pablum.

    Are the players asking the league and mlbpa not to have universal DH? I mean, if everyone hates it they can negotiate to get rid of it. Now is the time.

    But, i doubt it will happen other then a handful of times where the game dictates it.

    There is still no incentive for either side to do anything but posture. It will only get resolved when they start losing real money.

    I'm glad someone saw the slightly troll comment as a troll.

    For everyone else. I just don't see any improvement in the game by having a pitcher bat. I get it, its because I've been an AL fan my whole life. I'm sure Tony LaRussa agrees with you. So there's that.

    The talent. The artistry. The beauty of an immaculate inning.

    Followed by the pitcher helping his own cause?
