The last handful of years I have wondered if the AL is an actual league in this reality's MLB or a fantasy Candyland league where everyone makes $20 million a year and every team has 3 hitters with 100 RBI and 3 pitchers with an ERA under 3.00. Do you think the American League and its DH and fanciful players are real? I watched 15 minutes of a Yankees game once and I swear nothing happened but I walked away for a second and when I came back the scoreboard said it was 18-12 and there had been 7 home runs hit. Magic? Mystery? The AL?
