It's like getting an entire bowl of marshmallows by random chance when you pour out your lucky charms.
So I have to sit through 3 Tim Lincecum at bats for the hope of an extra inning game?
A team running out of pitchers is exciting? You are describing less than one percent of baseball games.
Here is 100% of NL games: the pitcher hits. Ick.
I pay to watch skill. Pitchers as batters is not skill. It's a debacle.
