There are persuasive arguments for why the National League should adopt the DH and get rid of pitcher’s batting, but MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred thinks they’re hogwash.

Via MLB.com:

“Not having National League pitchers hit,” Manfred told reporters at Comerica Park, “would deprive us of the entertainment that Bartolo Colon has given us this year. It’s been a great source of entertainment for me. I don’t know about for the rest of you, but it has been for me.”

No, it has definitely been fun for us too.
