DH/Pitcher Problems in the National League
One of my favourite things to do in my spare time include writing blog posts and catching up on Twitter. As I’ve said before, one of the best (if not the best) communities on Twitter include the MLB one. Friday afternoon we had some spare time in class, and I checked Twitter on my iPhone. “DH in the NL” was among the top 20 trends in Canada, and I was immediately in wonder of what I could’ve missed. Turns out, I didn’t miss much. Other than the fact that the entire world was sharing there opinion about DH’s in the NL. As a Baseball blogger for a team in the AL, I don’t have much experience nor have I really formed an opinion on this. Although, I do have an opinion on one thing. Something that I think that the National League should think about is not making pitchers hit. Pitchers are an essential part of a baseball team, whether it be little league or the majors. Pitchers are not hitters and that’s something that they need to understand. Who remembers when “thee who shall not be named” (no I don’t mean Voldemort I mean David Price.. Haha) got a base hit, and I believed that tied the game?! I’ll admit, that was pretty cool but it’s something you definitely wouldn’t see everyday, or every season for that matter.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on any of the ideas above in the comments below, or as always feel free to throw me a tweet @aalyssacohen!To end off today’s post, I have a trivia question for you all! My mom has been sharing my blog with a few of her co-workers who like the BlueJays, and one of them gave me a question to ask you… So hear it is:
For the four major sports leagues in North America – MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL – what are the only 2 days of the year where there are no games played in any of these league?
Answer in the comments or below or tweet it to me, and the winner and answer will be revealed in my next post!
Catch you in the Rogers Centre!
