I think the big leagues would be better without these types of players. they play long beyond their time and they give an imbalance to the competition. The DH has extended the career of many a player....to the detriment of those players and of the game.

I know what you mean about DHs. Do you think if the DH scrapped that there would still be differences in play style between the leagues or would you get some big ball and small ball teams in both?

I've played a bit of fantasy baseball (I normally call my teams 'coopers townies' - my name being cooper!). The guys that present ball on tv over here run a league for the UK viewers. It's pretty simple compared to most. No drafts or trading between players, you just pick a team from a budget and can trade players on Sundays: http://fantasybaseballuk.com/

This was me this year: http://fantasybaseballuk.com/fantasy...old_Period=167
pretty average!

Cole Hamels pitched a good game - one great fact though; Jamie Moyer was in the majors before Cole Hamels was born!!!

Oh believe me...we've been giggling about it ever since they made the announcement. A lot of people in town thought it as a joke...but...it's not.
