You have to know the DH will never go away. AL teams are built around the DH and to suddenly have that taken away would F up the whole way their team is constructed. So there is no chance that they will vote to change the rules that would suddenly have them paying a ton of money to a guy that can't field, which means they will rarely hit.
I wonder how much the DH effects free agents. Do hitters who are looking for long-term deals think about the DH? Pujols for instance signed with an AL team (the only AL team that showed any interest) and did he consider the DH in his decision? I know most people will say something about how it doesn't matter because you pay a guy enough and he will play either way but I don't think it is 100% about the money and if you have two similar offers from two different teams but one has a DH, which one do you choose? On the flip side, does this effect SP decision? Knowing that the NL is better on their numbers or would they rather pitch in the AL so they don't have to worry about hitting? I could see this being different pitcher to pitcher where as with hitters I could see it being more widespread.
One thing I don't like in the NL is when a SP is pitching very well into the seventh inning but his team hasn't scored any runs. Then his turn comes up to bat but the guy in front of him hit a double so the pitcher gets pulled. Now the pitcher is done for the game because his team can't hit. Where in the AL, that pitcher gets to continue to pitch until he is done. Which brings up a question, do AL or NL pitchers last longer into games? Probably will end up being NL pitchers but I really hate when I see my pitcher get pulled early just for some stupid pinch hitter.
