Everyone says it's the DH...I say it was the expansion draft of 1977 in the AL that helped bring scoring up higher than the NL.
I agree totally, but you have to consider the DH factor. The expansion draft was a factor, but not as much as the DH. Take out one man (the lowly pitchetr) in the equation and you get much more scoring. It should be done away with and I've heard lately that old Bud is considering that...or adding it to the National League, which really is something I am against.
