The Designated Aesthetic: Why the National League DH Debate Can Be Irrational Without Being Invalid «
Although I’ve preferred the DH for years, I did not much care whether the NL had the DH or not. The daily implementation of interleague play has changed my opinion. You see, I really dislike interleague play. The current implementation of interleague, which sucks for a number of reasons, further penalizes teams which sign dedicated DHs, like the Red Sox, as they lose that bat during 10 games.
So, instead of bickering over whether MLB should get rid of the DH, maybe we can all agree to push MLB to get rid of interleague play, which nobody can dispute, is a far bigger abomination than the DH or pitchers batting.

They don’t need a big clock. They need umpires to enforce the rules already in place. Such a change wouldn’t require negotiation with the union. Such a change wouldn’t generate another distracting clock on my TV screen or at the ball park. Yet, it would accomplish the goal.
Baseball is a great game. It doesn’t need radical overhauls to stay popular. It just needs to be tweaked to keep the action moving and to help it fit into our busy lifestyles.
I would think it would take a few years for teams and hitters to evolve. For me, a little less offense isn’t really an issue. Game time is a bigger issue. Get the time back down to 2.5 hours and I’ll be happy.

Do they really need a clock? Can’t the umpires just speed up the pace by making the batters get in the box quicker and making the pitcher deliver the ball as soon as the batter is in the box? The Rules of Play already cover this. Rule 6 (The Batter) and Rule 8 (The Pitcher) already place time limits on the batter and pitcher. So, they don’t need to change the rules; they just need to enforce them.
