Doctor A.L. Move...

...except that I don't.

I hate the Designated Hitter Rule. It makes me sick that our Astros now have to play in the league with this rule. Everything about it just seems so wrong and dirty to me. YES - Pitchers should be expected to hit. That's how the game should be played! :x

But...que sera sera. :(

The Astros are on their way to the AL. Am I a knucklehead for hating this so much? Anyone out there stoked that we're moving Leagues?

I agree. I think the DH rule sucks, but some team from the NL Central must move to the AL.

I just wish that they would have sent the Brewers back to the AL.

Houston should be an NL team. I know that ship has sailed, and I'm content with my role for the rest of my life being the guy who just won't stop complaining about the AL move! :lol:
