    The DH is a ****ty rule that was created to increase scoring during a mini deadbolt era in the AL.
    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.

      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.

        You sure you aren't a St. Louis fan? This sounds like something The Greatest Fans In America would wax over.

          Of course the players are for it. It provides more jobs and extends careers.

              True. At least the Yankees have a terrible logo and uniform.

              But the Cardinals are the best team in National League, and thus actual baseball, history. They are annoying but they are right, like Democrats.

                  • Players Union rejected the MLB Owners' latest offer. So, I guess no baseball in 2022. At least for April, possibly longer. Siiiigh.

                      They adopted the DH, so who cares?
