    Might as well make it straight bases, allow steroids during the home run race, replace concession stands with restaurants, outlaw peanuts in the ballpark to protect against someone's allergies, and charge $10 for domestic beer.
    Through the grapevine has come a hint that the designated hitter may become a universal reality in Major League Baseball in the not-too-distant future. Hurry up. Oh, for the love of David Ortiz , Edgar Martinez and Frank Thomas, please hurry up...

      Baseball, as originally designed, is a game with 9 players in the field EACH taking their turn at bat. I hated the DH when it came into the AL and I still hate it. The idea that pitchers are too fragile to hit and run the bases is b.s. AL pitchers are spoiled!! The NL game is so much more interesting. Pitchers need to learn to hit while in the minor leagues.

      I would never vote for a guy who was primarily a career DH into the Hall of Fame. Never. If you don't have defensive skills to play in the field, then you ain't good enough for the Hall.

      Some of the rules changes being discussed -- such as the:20sec pitch clock and requiring relief pitchers to face a min of three batters -- are IMHO OK to make (with some refinements.) But they also need to tighten up time between innings. Games have gotten too long.
