That must have been it. Why on earth does the most dominating league continue to lose the ASG and most recently the world series? Crazy. Maybe the AL should quit winning all those intraleague games. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Don't be so down... up until 2010 the AL hadn't lost since '96! (with one *grrrr* tie in between that still irks me!).

National League leads all time, though... 43-38-2

Sorry, I just can't ever seem to allow myself to pull for the league with the DH rule. It's pure socialism /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

Well then it's racist!

(there, now I've thrown out the two logical conclusions from either side that explains everything! It's ALWAYS either socialism or racism /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif )

Actually, it's just monopoly capitalism.

None of pro sports could exist in their present form without their exemptions from the Sherman Anti-Trust Act.

Collusion? Check. Restraint of trade? Check. The gaming of things like the media sales, in order to vastly enrich the insiders? Check.

You simply prefer the rules of one set of monopoly capitalists over those of another, slightly different group.

It's just a trick to keep head-hunting pitchers from retaliation when they get to the plate, IMO.

Eh I hope y'all know I was just kidding earlier!

IMO the DH rule was a pretty simple idea: more runs= more excitement= more fan interest. Not popular to purists such as myself, but I definitely understand the theory behind it.

It is so boring to watch pitchers bat. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif Well except the occasional homerun.

You need to watch Mike Leake play.

Two home runs this year and his average is well above .300 ... and close to .300 for his 3 year career.

Actually baseball is the only one with an exemption.
