I hate the DH

New, comments

I hate the DH... well not totally the DH by itself, just the fact that the DH is in one league and not the other.  I think that the rules should be the same in both leagues.  If I had a preference, they should just totally get rid of the DH; but I would be okay with them having the DH in both leagues.

Maybe it's just because I'm an NL type of guy, but I think games played between NL and AL teams are TOTALLY unfair towards the NL team.  When games are played in AL parks, the NL team basically puts one of their bench players who isn't good enough to play in an everyday lineup as their DH while the AL team has a guy that's sole purpose for the entire season is to hit the ball.  I've listened to the radio on the nationally syndicated radio shows and constantly hear the talking heads on the radio talk about how it's unfair to the AL teams when playing in the NL Parks... umm.. no.  It's EVEN then.

I just wanted to rant a little bit.  I'll get off my soap box now.
