Fine with me. I like tense games in the later innings. Better yet if my team wins the majority of 1 run games. A good hitting pitcher can make the difference.

One recent year Adam Wainwright had a winning record with a high ERA. But, he drove in 18 runs as a pitcher equating to a half run a game.

So there is a Mendoza line position player and a pitcher hitting 8th and 9th. Well, the 8th place hitter has to be pesky and find a way on base and get to second on a sacrifice by the pitcher. The first place hitter can single him in for a run. Baseball is more than HRs.

To me this benefits the Twins by reduces the demand for Cruz which helps us to sign him for another year.

Don't like it, want consistent rules in each league. Crazy to play on way all year with a few exceptions during interleague play, then in WS have to play differently on the road.
