The Pro-“Let the Pitcher Hit” Thread

Posted By Tangotiger On January 26, 2010 @ 4:17 pm In Daily Graphings | 116 Comments

In this thread, your ONLY comments allowed are those that favor the pitcher being part of the hitting lineup. I will delete any post otherwise. You can put in whatever argument you want to support you. For example:

1. Tradition

2. All nine players should take the field and bat in the lineup: pure 2-dimensional.

3. The gap in talent level means that you have to decide when to bring in a pinch hitter or when to bunt. Extra layer of strategy consideration.

4 to n. You tell me
