I think we're going to have a DH in the NL eventually. I figured it would come after some multi-million contract pitcher got a season-ending injury while batting. I'm surprised they're talking about it being for the 2019 season rather than announce "next year universal DH."

I do want to see a pitch clock. It's actually been in the rule book forever (at 12 seconds, not the 20 proposed).

I'm a bit shocked they would go to an NL DH for the 2019 season this close to spring training.

I don't want to spark a debate on DH but let the record state that I hate it and wish AL dropped DH instead of NL adding it.

I agree with glassy's stance, but understand that the AL will never drop the DH. I just hope the NL doesn't add it.

Found the idiot owner!
Based on their payroll, they do have the money to pay him. Heck, they could probably get Harper, too.
