Searching for that dream season somewhere beyond the diamond where spring brings hope, blossoming into a long summer of wonder before finally fading into a golden autumn memory.

The Great DH Debate
Last week two American League pitchers were injured while either swinging a bat or running the bases in National League parks. The Yankees' owner, Hank Steinbrenner, had this to say after his team lost its top pitcher due to an injury while running the base paths:
"It's time the National League joins the 21st century."
Hank wants the NL to switch to the AL-style DH rule so pitchers don't have to bat. Is he right?
