Do you prefer the DH (designated hitter) or the NL-style where the pitcher has to hit?
My personal opinion:
- There is more strategy in the NL--hands down. I love the strategy of single, steal second, get him over to 3rd, and sacrifice fly to get him home. I love the double switch. I love that pitchers can't hide behind their hitters, but instead they have to put the helmet on and take a few swings.
- The AL is entertaining in the sense that they play for the 3-run-homer. The DH "ups" the run total, but it takes away strategic moves like the double switch and pitch hitter.
Though I grew up in an AL town (Dallas), I prefer the NL-style.
BTW--the Angels are the best team in baseball. They are unbeatable right now!
