I don't know about that, they don't have as deep benches usually and pitchers who don't hit on a regular basis.
If anything the NL has a disadvantage before inter-league because AL teams can rest their everyday players by putting them at DH here and there and the NL can't. Inter-league lets the NL rest some guys but keep their bat in the lineup.
The one negative about inter-league is it creates some unfair scheduling advantages here and there and its a shame to see a playoff spot won because of which teams you played in a lopsided schedule. If I wanted to watch a teams schedule decide who goes to the playoffs I'd watch NFL more.
