• No really, the DH should be universal

    Every now and then, an American League pitcher gets hurt running the bases in an interleague game. This leads some people to call on the National League to enter the late 20th century and implement the designated hitter rule already, which in turn prompts even more outraged responses from the people who like to watch pitchers stand at the plate and do something that approximates hitting. The latest example of the latter genre is this pre-emptive effort from CBS Sports.
