Extremely well said. The only problem with elementary truths is that they are not elementary for some to grasp. I have always liked the DH rule in the AL. I have been taken to task by purists and others over this flawed thinking. I don’t care as watching a pitcher try and hit is not exciting to me. In the same way if you like the 2019 rules that is fine. Enjoy them but don’t try and justify them by taking matters out of context and incorrectly rattling off meaningless stats. I like the 2018 rules better than the 2019 period.
