Going into the day today the NL was down to the AL by 10 games in interleague play. As I write this, the leagues are 5-5 but the AL leads all four games in progress.
I'm a big fan of the NL, having grown up with it as a Cub fan. I think the DH takes a lot of strategy out of the game. Logic dictates that the NL should have a distinct advantage in interleague play because AL pitchers who normally don't bat are forced to during road games. And yet the AL always seeems to dominate.
I suppose as a Cub fan I should be happy to see Cub rivals largely losing. And yet as a fan of NL baseball in all the revelry of a great Cubs season I find mself yet again somewhat disheartened at the overall performance of the NL.
What exactly is going on here?
