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.
I still don't like the wildcard, but that is another topic.
I know for a fact that I would stop following baseball as close if the DH were adopted in the NL. I already switched league alliances once because I found it a less interesting brand of baseball. I'm not looking for more excitement out of baseball - there are already a few other sports I find more exciting - I watch baseball because I find it interesting.
