I didn't vote. I don't like the DH and I'm a fan of both leagues.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

I didn't vote either. Basically, I don't care, but I'm an AL fan. I guess mostly because I'm a Yankee fan.

I'm over the DH thing. It's not going away. It's been how many years? Who cares? The precious game has survived with it, and some great players, loved by fans, have managed to stay in baseball for a few extra years.

Even better, I don't have to watch the AL pitchers hit. I do hate watching pitchers hit, for the most part, in NL games.

I wouldn't campaign to save the DH, but I wouldn't campaign against it either. Either way, it doesn't matter because it's here to stay.

The DH eliminates a great deal of strategy from the game, allows aging players to stay well past their welcome, and takes accountability away from the pitchers who don't have to step in the batters box [*couch* CLEMENS!!*cough**cough*]

The DH should be abolished.

It also eliminates a free pass every time around the batting order for your pitchers.

If it takes accountability away from pitchers (which I think is a totally useless argument), then great! I want pitchers to throw inside, occasionally hit a player, and try to own the strike zone. That's what all the best pitchers, including Clemens, do.

ok, i hear what you are saying up get this:


Is it fais for a pitcher in the Al to get more rest than a pitcher who pitches in the NL??

answer:no

is it an automatic out if the pitcher is batting?

answer: no

(he could hit the ball you know, just becuase they batt .200 doesn;t mean that its an automatic out!)

Was the Dh made for pitcher so they could pitch better?

answer:no (it was made for the AL becuase it needed fans!!!)

is this a good arguement: The Dh allows players who cant field still play?"

answer: No, why you ask well becuase if they cant field then they suck. Am I right? YEA, look at the 1986 World series...)

Is this a good arguement: "The DH allows a pitcher to focus on pitching"

anser: yes,!!!!! and this is the only good arguement.


But if the pitcher uses the DH as a advantage to thorw inside (Roger), he should thrown out of baseball. He should bat and be thorwn inside upon. ITS ONLY FAIS if he bats.


if you did say yes to the dh well here is another question:


Why stop at one DH??? Why not have 9 players field and have 9 players bat?

hmmmmm, becuase that would be dumb!

Well, I'm sort of saying that, but what I'm really saying is, "The DH is here to stay, and it's not going anywhere, so quit bringing it up."

I'm not saying that to the forum. Interesting discussion here, of course.

I'm saying it more to all the clown dog reporters who always bring this up. As if the commissioner is investigating this or something. It's not going anywhere because:
1. The union would never approve it
2. Fans like that Edgar Martinez is still playing baseball and that Mike Piazza could still continue to play in a few years.
3. The union would never approve it

Oh yeah. One more reason:
4. The union...

;-)

Another one for real. The DH is great for fantasy!!! How can you complain about having Edgar available?
