G71: Rangers split DH, lose series with 4-2 loss

We were shut down by New York’s pitching. Michael Young & Josh Hamilton had RBI singles in the first and third innings, but that’s all we managed to push across the plate all game. Even one of those runs was unearned. Of our six overall hits, just one was an extra base hit (double by Cat). That was pretty much it.
Kason Gabbard was “meh”, although I didn’t think he was THAT awful. 5.2IP, 8H, 3BB, 4ER.
I have to say I don’t like watching pitchers bat. If we continue to have splits between AL & NL vs the DH, then we need to reverse it in interleague. Use the DH In NL towns, and make pitchers bat in AL parks.

  1. Good idea says:

    During the World Series, DH should bat ninth in odd-numbered games and pitchers should bat ninth in even-numbered games. This way we get to see all four permutations and combinations at least once during the World Serious no matter how many games it takes to produce a champ.
