Arrrrggh....I have been reticent about inter-league play in Major League Baseball for this very reason. If we pay pitchers hundreds of thousands of dollars, is it really too much to ask them to take some regular batting practice? If we have to have a Designated Hitter, at least have two different leagues that play substantively different styles of baseball with and without the DH. I don't watch a whole lot of other professional sports because of this. If you are going to have leagues or conferences or whatever, at least make each league unique. Otherwise, it is all just a scheme for more making more playoff money.
Bud Selig, have some integrity for once.
