I dont think they should I think not having a DH adds a lot more strategy to the game. But a lot of fans only care about hitting and adding a DH would probably lead to more people watching because of that. What I found out was – They should keep it the way it is when there are a lot of people who dislike the DH so those people have the option of following an NL team. If the DH ever gets accepted by the vast majority of baseball fans the NL could consider adopting it but I don't think we're near that point yet. It's probably a beautiful even split of fans for and against so it's good the way it is for now.

    I dont think so, the national league is good how it is, it doesnt need an extra guy to get runs, they could do it with the other 8 guys

    I prefer not having it, but I understand why the AL does use the DH. I personally think having it different in both leagues is the best fix. I do see the NL using the DH in the next 25 years.

    Few people know that the NL almost adopted the DH in 1973 with the AL. The Philies and Pirates were on the fence and thought they would vote together for the rule change. Instead a miscommunication led to differing votes and as such the rule change did not occur. Since then the NL is the only level of baseball that does not allow any form of designated hitter. And I like it that way.

    Yesthe DH spot is quiet simple. To say that a pitcher who bats adds stradegy is really just an opinon because in my opinion, it actually inhibits stradegy due to the fact that A. He either bunts the ball, or B. strikes outit isn't like A. L. Teams lack that "small ball" stradegy in fact last season the Angels were top dog at playing this kind of smart baseball and they did pretty well for themselvesits simply the fact that a DH puts a lot more action into the game, opposed to a pitcher who PERHAPS is not even a great pitcher on the mound, let alone a batter at the plate. . . is not what kind of players I wanna watch play, for someone to fill a spot should really FILL THE SPOT

    I have mixed feelings on the DH. I like it from the standpoint, because you have a greater chance of having a big inning where you bat around and you can bury a team. Without the DH It forces you to have a better bullpen since there will be less blow outs. I also dislike the DH because games will just take too long with it. I love watching baseball, but games take forever and the the elimination of the DH can speed up games.

    I hope the AL gives in first and goes back to real baseball. There are better ideas for the DH than the current abomination.
