I'm in Toronto becoming a Westerner. I just cannot believe that people from the central to east have become this way. I like the wide open west. Look at how teams like New Orleans and Arizona played in football. Just wide-open football. And everyone loved it.
So hey, let the American League Pitcher hit. Roy Halladay, the best pitcher in the major leagues the last seven seasons will now be forced to hit in the NL, what a dream. Santana now hits. Lowe now hits. It's not a big deal. It's good that baseball has variety because baseball has always been a very quirky game, and that's what keeps people interested: the quirks.
So hey, let's keep things the way they are which is an eastern way of doing things, but look at the predicted outcome, a wild wild wild west outcome. And that's something that'll keep satisfying the western-leaners in an eastern-leaning town like Toronto.
