The Designated Hitter harming MLB: "...whether Selig realizes it or not, the dearth of pitching in baseball, especially in the AL, is threatening to make a travesty of his game." Look at these numbers, 38% of qualifying pitchers (this season) in the AL have an ERA below 4.00, while 62% of NL pitchers are below the mark. With every passing season, it's becoming more clear how much of a joke pitching in the AL has become and with the exception of a select few, teams will continue to struggle. Hopefully, sooner than later the DH will become a thing of the past in the AL.
