Started to read it on MLBTR.
Schwarber held a 3 DRS. he is not inept anymore. The whole DH bit is not a factor with him anymore.3 batter minimum is a change that must occur. They are also wanting to reduce mound visits more. Another must. If the DH goes through, people can stop complaining about Schwarber not getting traded.
Yes. It is. They can do better in LF. They can also use DH some for matchups.Schwarber held a 3 DRS. he is not inept anymore. The whole DH bit is not a factor with him anymore.
I personally would make Zo the main DH to add AB'S to him. Then do a semi rotation to give Bryant and others a hitting day where you don't lose his line up presence.
But saying Schwarber DH and Happ LF is not a accurate opinion anymore.
I don't want the DH because it devalues your bench. If you can effectively roll out the same 9 games for 130 or so games all the bench is for is a backup catcher and platoon type guys. It really doesn't make teams build a quality bench.The 3 batter min for pitchers will never fly. You might get a 2 batter minimum. The DH will happen because everyone other than some owners wants it.
I just don't agree with you. Zo is 38 and getting him 500+ PA is a larger reward than any so called LF benefit that you can squeek over 3DRS.Yes. It is. They can do better in LF. They can also use DH some for matchups.
3'batters rarely constitutes a inning. What was intended is bring up a pitcher to force a switch then countering with another switch. Thus burning a PH.The DH and September Roster I can see passing..
The max 12 pitchers on Roster with 3 batter rule may not go
The 12 pitcher thing would then eliminate the use of a position player eating innings in blowouts to save using up relievers
If it happens I see Happ as the DH in Apr for the most part. Zo at 2B. After Russell comes back Zo gets pushed off 2B and is a better producer than Happ. I do see some pivot happening with players getting a hitting day vs a day off if they are worn or in a slump where they can go 100% focused on hitting and in the cage inbetween AB's. That honestly should be more wide spread in baseball vs a dedicated DH.Just saw the players association asking for DH to be implemented this season..
Work out perfect for Cubs , they can have Schwarber DH and Harper play LF... lol
