You know the head vs heart thing.
My heart loves the NL game.
The thinking, the double-switching, all the stuff you normally think about but... also I just like the NL game because when pitchers bat you just never know what's gonna happen.
And you said, "Well... of course you know what's gonna happen - they'll strike out."
Which is why it's so much more "you never know what's gonna happen" when a sub-Mendoza pitcher actually does something good with his bat.
Last season it took Cub pitchers 60 games to get their first sac bunt, and the batter that game happened to be Kyle Hendricks.
He of the .050/.066/.067 slash.
He was also the same guy who, in the second inning of game two in last year's Cubs/Cards NLDS, squeeze bunted in the first Cub run, causing Jaime Garcia and then pretty much the entire Cardinal team to scream "I'M MELTING! MEEEELTIIIIING!"
And they gave up 5 runs before that third out was recorded.
Did you know that was gonna happen?
That's why it was such an unbelievable and uniquely NL-style thing.
But my head...
Head says look at all the big bats the Cubs have been stockpiling.
How much more valuable is Dan Vogalbach if he doesn't have to pick up a glove?
(Lots put Kyle Schwarber in that camp, but it's waaay too early to make that judgement.)
I can get by all the arguments against the DH if I think it gets the Cubs a World Series.
It's that simple.
I have learned to stop worrying and love the DH.
