I think that if the DH is adopted in the NL, people will grumble for about a year and then get used to it. Maybe even eventually prefer it.
For example, when Votto was playing on a sore knee last year, it sure would've been nice to have the luxury to DH him while the medical staff took a few weeks to decide if he was really injured or not.
This is pretty much my stance on it. I'm indifferent about it because I can see both sides of the argument. I don't think if the NL gets rid of the DH that cats and dogs are going to start living together or the Lake of Fire will open up in down town Chicago either. It won't be the end of the world. The kind of ball that Latin American and Asian countries have is still great. All of those leagues have the DH. In Japan, they appreciate the fundamentals more than most Americans do and they have a DH.
