    YES!!!!! Phillies were prepared to vote for the DH in the 70’s. Imagine Greg Luzinski as the DH with a platoon in LF.

    I’m going to be branded “the guy who can’t grow with today’s game”, but I really haven’t liked it. It takes away all the moves. It’s made it easier for Girardi to try and avoid the dismal bullpen, but overall, it’s not as fun of a game.
