Bowden has an article in the Athletic this morning pushing for universal DH. He says that both the owners and players want it but that the owners feel that the players want it more so they are using the rule change as a negotiating point. This keeps all of the NL teams in limbo as the GMs don't know whether to sign starters who can go deep into games or big hitters who can't field. I hate the DH but if it is going to happen Manfred should force a vote now so that the Nats and the rest of the NL is on the same footing as the AL teams.
In relation to this, Marcell Ozuna must be smoking weed. Dude fired his agent a few days ago because he hasnt gotten any decent offers yet. #1, most owners have probably put big dollar FA pursuits on hold until they get a clearer sign about what (if any) attendance will be like next year. And #2, if he was smart, he'd wait for confirmation that the DH will be in place for '21 -- in that way, his list of suitors can only go up, because I can imagine clubs have seen his atrocious defense and are wary of putting him in the outfield. As great a season as he had, I've seen alot of Braves fans complain about his defense. Also wondering too if alot of clubs are skeptical about his 2020 #'s, because they were a significant deviation away from the norm.
