Would MLB be better without the DH?


#1

Clayton Kershaw thinks so. Certainly would keep pitchers in check who have a tendency to headhunt. What are your thoughts?


#2

Yes.
The DH is for dunderhead fans and managers who don’t want to be questioned. Simplifying the game for simpletons.

Coincidence :wink: I think not.

It forces teams to go to their benches late in games if they want to make situational pitching changes, and it makes the bench strength mean something. In the NL teams may pull their starter in a close game if there are runners on base and there is an opportunity to score. It makes things more interesting. The only downside is that the lineup is really 8 plus a speed bump.
