What a horrible thing to have happen. MLB really needs to have the DH rule in both leagues.

Should everyone of the opposite point of view post a snarky message after every crappy pitcher's at bat?

I find my opinion on the DH strangely malleable based on how well Kyle Schwarber is hitting at any given time...

Perhaps it would be worthwhile to just pilot the DH in the NL with one team and see how it goes...

Headline makes it sound like he was released.

Which is what I also thought. "What the heck?"

I'd be curious to see his plate-to-third time -- looked to be running very well

if a pitcher ever gets hurt running the bases, you'll meet "everyone" here!

I thought it was a strange decision by Arizona to even let him bat.

I'm one of those weirdos who's fine having the DH in one league but not the other, but I'd miss stuff like this if all of MLB went to the DH.

So, in less than a year we've gotten the first-ever postseason triple by a reliever, and the first postseason homer by a relief pitcher in over 90 years (Travis Wood, LDS game 2 last year). Kind of cool.

There's nothing weird about that. Except with milk, homogenization sucks.

Absolutely. I understand why they'd want him to pitch in the 8th with the middle of the order coming up, but perhaps there was a missed double switch opportunity there that could have prevented him coming up. It's also worth asking if him running the bases like that in any way contributed to his poor pitching in the 8th.

IIRC, he was a very good athlete in high school and had been recruited as a quarterback at Oklahoma before choosing baseball. So I suspect he's unlikely to be Bartoloing his way around the bases.

Yup, 2016 MLB average time to third on a triple was 12.01 seconds. I have Bradley at around 11.75.

Indeed, one of the finest aspect of baseball is that the rules aren't standardised, the parks aren't standardised.

And indeed, homo milk is best milk. Well, if you live in North America. In Britain, I drank unhomogenised whole fat milk. That was brilliant. But I've never seen it in the colonies.

Eduardo Nuñez is a pitcher?? Well, as Designated Hitter I guess he's halfway to being a pitcher, so maybe that counts. Injuries happen, even to pitchers, so unless we wrap everyone in bubble wrap and prohibit them from playing the game we're stuck with that reality. A pitcher could just as soon injure his hamstring or knee fielding a bunt. H3ll, Joey Eischen broke his arm diving for a popped-up bunt when he was pitching for the Nationals.

I understand "raw milk" is illegal in most (if not all) colonies here. There was even an episode of Schitt's Creek which centered around a scheme to sell raw milk to make a little moulah (that's a quid to you and me).

I kind of think that has become the mainstream opinion. This has been the state of baseball since many of us have watched the games, and we like baseball, so the dual option must be okay.

As one of the anti-DH voices around here, I have to admit I can't even get rid of the thing in my own OOTP league. Just like MLB, we've got one league with the DH and one without.

Does the colonies include Australia? When I was in Sydney 30 years ago it was quite common. We even had it delivered by a milkman!

Pasteurization and homogenization are two different things.

but that's not what we read here after a pitcher gets hurt on the bases
