When Did We All Fall Into Mr. Peabody's Wayback Machine?

So when exactly did we all fall into Mr. Peabody's "Wayback Machine" and travel to the deadball era of 1968? With the way the Cubs have hit this season, it sure SEEMS like we did take a trip with Sherman and Mr. P. to the time of Gibson, McClain, Kofax, Marichal and Jenkins.

This isn't just a mass case of "juicelessness" (is that an adjective? Well it is now...). This situation requires ACTION to help tip the scales of justice back in the favor of the poor, overmatched hitters. 

BCBers: What would YOU do to to revive offense?

Make the DH mandatory in the NL? 

Lower the pitching mound (again)?

Make pitchers throw from second base?

Make pitchers use their non-dominant arm?

Let batters take TWO bats to the plate?

Let's hear YOUR ideas for how MLB can help wake up the Cubs hitters and return them from the 1960s!
