    Why allow the light hitting shortstop to hit instead of Mike Trout? I think we should eliminate the batting order entirely and let anyone hit at anytime. Heck, let’s get rid of defense entirely and just have HR Derby.

    As for your Football analogy, if it is some kind of fully predictable cycle that can be avoided at some consistent price, than it might make sense. I am not saying it Should be implemented, it is stupid and makes no sense. But making cross-sport analogies is stupid and makes no sense since sports are different (especially baseball and football which have absolutely nothing in common with each other)

    but again... i am not questioning about whether you like DH or not... I am saying, that the universal DH was part of the negotiations from day 1... So, when you were wishing for baseball to be back, for the owners and players to agree, the DH was always there... and so was you guys wishing baseball to come back in any form...

    Just saying, the non-stop complaining about how baseball was not coming back, to now that it is coming back and the complaining about the DH...

    Not picking on you.. Just on NL fans in general... you can't have it both ways especially when it was known that no matter what if there was going to be baseball there would be the DH...

    Another Honest question!!!

    Will there even be baseball this season... with so many players already opting out... and with covid still being a thing...

    are the players opting out in fear of their lives??

    Why can’t we have it both ways? Be happy baseball is back but be pissed that they are taking advantage of the situation to incrementally further the infection of the virus better known as the DH?

    Another bizarre little detail about the upcoming season:

    According to Cashman, teams will not be able to disclose if players are placed on the COVID-19 IL. It would be left to the media and fans to guess why the player is not available.
