Taking away one strategy to implement another.

Either have a DH in your league or don't. This isn't that hard.

wow. i really like this suggestion of eliminating the dh once the starting pitcher is pulled.

i think the only instance where i wouldn't like this idea would be having to scrap the dh if a starting pitcher left early due to an injury. a single injury shouldn't force two players from the game.


One of the better ideas for rule changes I've seen.

Via Adam McCalvy earlier today:

Craig Counsell thinks there's still a "decent chance" the DH is back in the National League again in 2021.

right! dont try to be 'overly creative', you either do it or dont. I dont think anyone on any team complained about the DH last year in the NL, did they? Just media types and personalities, and 'pure'ists?

Agreed. I'd think if there was any hesitation at all for it, the would simply buy more time by saying - we are going to keep it for 2021 due to COVID concerns - and then buy yourself another year to determine if it is permanent.

Seems like there is a lot of thumb twiddling over nothing here.

Twitter Video of Ken Rosenthal expressing his belief that the DH will be universal for 2021 and beyond.

That's huge and would make finding a full time 1B (say Cron) more critical which might explain the quantity over quality effort at 3B. Also could effect whether Braun chooses to return. Would be a strong DH platoon with him and Vogelbach.

Obviously, Vogelbach's value to the Brewers jumps immensely if there's a DH...

Used to never like the idea of the dh until we had a few pitchers get hurt batting or running the base paths, so hopefully the dh is full time deal. I love the idea of Braun back in Milwaukee as a dh.

Filling the DH and 1B spots with proven bats allows them to go with cheap options and try different guys at 3B in the hopes of finding lightening in a bottle.

If we can get Braun back on a cheap deal to DH with Vogelbomb, then why not spend some real cash on a real 3B?

Has there been any actual indication that Braun would be willing to come back on a 'cheap deal'?

I thought its already been said that none of the 2020 rules (besides 3 batter minimum) will be in 2021 season.

Who though? Other than Justin Turner (who is 36), the free agent 3B market is pretty bad. Many believe that LeMahieu wouldn't be an effective everyday 3B. You are looking at guys like Gyorko, Todd Frazier, Maikel Franco, Tommy LaStella or Marwin Gonzalez.

Last I checked Gyorko was the third best available, so, yeah, this is the reality.

I'd rather give the job to Urias, which, yeah, I know.

I would be completely fine with La Stella on a 2 year deal.

Not that I'm aware of... Maybe just wishful thinking.

Trade perhaps?

I think that's likely the route they would need to go. If Hader is moved, I sure as heck hope an MLB-ready 3B is coming back.

I doubt there is any real market for Braun's services. If he wants to play, whatever deal he signs will be "cheap".
