    Thoughts on NL

    I am a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan and most of the time I am set in my ways. Case in point, I still am not a big fan of the interleague games and somewhat prefer the old NL vs NL and AL vs AL ways. But, I keep going back-and-forth on the DH versus no DH in the National League. I always liked the National League having it because it causes managers to think more with double switches and getting the bullpen up. Lately though, I have been starting to think maybe the DH in the National League won't be that bad afterall because lets face it, no one bunts the ball anymore or hit and runs like they used to generate runs.

    How do you guys feel about MLB and National League...no DH or DH???

    Well my take is this........I think MLB should either S#$@ or get off the pot regarding the DH! Either use it for both Leagues or can it for both Leagues. It just seems, to have Professional Baseball going back and forth (depending on where they are playing), a truly ridiculous scenario! It really is even more unfair to AL Teams when playing in NL Parks, since most AL Pitchers probably don't even know which end of the Bat to hold! LOL!!!

    Now in the CSFBL National League..........I LOVE the DH RULE! It is really unique and is what separates this League from every other League in CSFBL. In addition, it is a tool that helps teams stay under the Salary Cap and makes Owners work a little bit to find a passable bat in the Line-up.

    Just my 2 cents worth!

    Agree Ravennod on the DH here but this DH rule in MLB needs to be figured out.

    The game of baseball unfortunately seems to be an older group of fans, they need to figure out how to get younger people to enjoy the game in my opinion.

    *this*

    Both leagues need to have the same rule or "don't play interleague!". Over time, I'm now leaning towards a DH in the NL. (Almost) no pitcher above high school is in the batting lineup anymore. It's a debacle watching some pitchers try to hit for the first time since HS at age 26. So to get rid of the DH altogether would be to also get rid of the DH in college, minor leagues, and independent leagues.

    Although I will miss seeing a Bartolo Colon type HR every once in awhile.
