Re: The Reds & and the new DH debate
The sooner it happens, the better it will be for NL baseball. Personally, I don't like the DH, but I also know that it is never going away because the MLBPA isn't going to allow it. Too many guys have held jobs longer than they otherwise would have and gotten paid very well because of it to let it happen.
It creates inequality for the AL. They can sign contracts that NL teams simply can't. That allows them to stack more talent overall than the NL can. They can sign a big slugger in his early 30's to a big deal that a team in the NL can't because they know in 5-7 years he won't be able to play defense at all, so they can't pay him $15+M. The AL can though.
