As a National League fan since I was eleven years old, I have opposed the designated hitter in the N.L. since the A.L. adopted it. Even though most National League teams have abandoned using strategy long ago. But as I posted some time ago, I backed using it in the N.L. permanently for the following reason. With the exception of one league in Japan (as far as I know), all of the other leagues use the D.H. Including American college and Minor League teams, where players and pitchers prepare for it. And I felt that not using it put N.L. teams at a disadvantage. A.L. teams stock their rosters for nine batters positions, while the N.L. stock theirs for eight batters positions. So they had to scramble when playing in a D.H. game. Now that COVID-19 schedules are based on regional areas rather than leagues, we are all using the D.H. But Torey Lovullo is not using that batting position as a hitters position. He announced that he going to rotate hitters. A batting position without a player who earned it. Or, at worst, a regular left-handed/right-handed platoon. Putting us at a disadvantage when facing other teams. Most nights, the best candidate is not at D.H. For all of those reasons, I hope that MLB doesn't rescind the D.H. in the N.L. next season. And that the D-backs get with the program. What are your thoughts, based on these circumstances?
