I propose a designated runner (DR) whenever a teams catcher comes up to the plate. He'll just stand behind the catcher whenever the catcher bats and runs to first whenever a ball is hit into play. I mean, no one wants to see some fat dude with bum knees try to gimp his way to first. Just think of the excitement it would add to the games, more hit-n-runs, stolen bases, trying to stretch that double into a triple.

Who wouldn't want to see that?

9beers: No way, the DH is the best thing ever put in place. Nobody wants to see a pitcher hit.

pitchers should absolutely hit. no one wants to see some fat washed up former steroids case bat 4x a game without ever fielding a position either.

plus, i guarantee you your Clemenses, Martinezes of the world would have been a hell of a lot less brave headhunting if they were going to stand in the box.

(yes, i remember the 2002 subway series rematch when that Met pitcher wussed out and threw a 62MPH ball 55 feet towards Clemens in retaliation for Clemens banking a 98MPH heater against Mike "I'm Not Gay" Piazza's damn forehead).

/plus the story i heard told on sports radio of some interleague game, or perhaps when clemens was an Astro, of Clemens getting on base, then getting checked back to first 4-5 times. Clemens was not in good shape at the time and after the 4th or 5th time he had to scamper back, he told the 1B "if that submitch throws here again, you're gonna catch a fastball with your ear next at-bat."

1b wisely backed up to the outfield grass....
