I didn't realize the shift dated back that far, I thought it was more recent.

It's Boras pushing against the shift, it hurts Bryce Harper and other sluggers who want to have MLB adjust the rules so they don't have to adjust their hitting style. Illegal defense was a bad idea in the NBA and it would be just as bad in baseball.

Agreed. This is yet another example of how difficult it is to compare players and stats from different eras. Hate to sound like an old fart, but hitters like Ted Williams had to deal with more hurdles than modern hitters.

The Atlantic league is going to have the DH for the starting pitcher only, so that either relievers need to hit or pinch hitters have to come in from that point forward. My preference is no DH at all but I like this compromise. It makes the managers game plan more and gets teams deeper into the pen and bench than with the standard DH.
