  • I don't disagree with what youre saying. The NL is more likely to adopt the DH than the AL is to lose it. I disagree with that though.

    • Fenikz how come you don't pimp Drew more? He's been a top 5 SS all year and you haven't said a word about it.

      • We don't need pitchers getting hurt running the bases any more than it already happens in the NL. There is nothing fun about watching the pitchers hit.

        I like the strategy and the purity (for lack of a better word) that having the pitchers bat creates, but from a practical standpoint (and a financial one), it makes no sense to get rid of the DH.

            It's happened. Position players are hurt all the time running them.

            If you think it happens infrequently, it's only because they run the bases station to station making efforts not to get hurt by playing it safe.

              Chien-Ming Wang got hurt running the bases down in Houston in 2008. It happened in June and he was done for the year.

              • Ok well that's fine. The point still stand that SP's don't get hurt while batting or running the bases. If you want to argue that the offense is less because of it well that's obvious.

                  Once in a blue moon is what I should have said.

                    Someone got hurt doing the same last year too. Can't remember who though. This is way back but David Cone shattered his finger not bunting properly.

                      If regular position players get hurt running the bases and at the plate, then pitchers will too. They don't operate in a magic bubble when not on the mound, haha.

                      • The odds of it happening are small.

                          It's just one of a dozen good reasons against abolishing the DH.

                            I don't talk individuals much, he's been a top 5 SS the past 3 years I figured everyone knew by now

                              • I had no idea that Florida just fell off completely as of late. They were right there hanging with the Braves and Phils, and then BAM! 1-9 in their last 10. They're like one game under .500 now. Ouch.

                                As for some really early playoff talk...I have a hard time envisioning the Phils or Braves not making it. The race for the wild card spot is going to be ridiculous all season long.

                                Thanks BoneKrusher^
