    Which form of the game do you prefer and think should be used IF there were to be only one across the entire MLB?

    AL - no question.

    Nobody wants to see a pitcher hit

    Of course. Pitchers should be able to hit a ball. It's part of the sport. Dh is a move to "make the sport exciting". Derp

    old thinking - they don't go after the pitcher in the NL either - they go after the best hitter
