I grew up in New England as a Red Sox fan,  but after I moved to Philly and tasted the NL game,  I realized how much more strategy was involved in the late innings.   It is far more satisfying to watch, not withstanding the affront to the sensibilities that EA mentioned of pitchers waving their bats like hankies.

The news just came out---if the National League is going to adopt the DH, it won't happen until 2022 at minimum and depending on the next collective bargaining agreement, according to commissioner Rob Manfred.

Much like men can have disparate opinions on various topics, so do women. This chick is plenty happy with real baseball and thinks the DH is a perversion of the rules.

With all due respect, my special baseball friend . . .

where on earth did you get that idea? (And you're talking to a man who held out against the DH for over four and a half decades.

I'm not necessarily disputing your logic.  I'm just an old-fashioned girl who likes the old-fashioned game. 

I'd still share a beer with you anytime, though!

*laughing* I'm pretty sure she meant having a beer with me, each of us having our own damned beer.

(Well, in my case, it would actually be a bourbon and Coke or a glass of wine, since you can count on half your hand how often I drink beer.)

I know!  It was too good an opportunity to pass up!

And I'll take a good single malt over beer any day!

Our bar will have all the above.  It's big. 
I will NOT comply.
