#1 Cochran Sports Showdown: Feb. 11, 2019 (Part 3)

WELCOME BACK SPRING TRAINING BASEBALL STARTS THIS WEEK

WE WILL BEGIN WITH DESIGNATED HITTER TALK EVEN THOUGH YOU WON'T SEE IT IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE IT IS BOUND TO COME IT APPEARS AT SOME POINT THIS IS A HOT BUTTON TOPIC DO YOU WANT DH IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE? YES YES

AS SOON AS POSSIBLE GIVE IT TO ME THIS YEAR GIVE ME SOMEBODY WHO CAN HIT THE BASEBALL GIVE ME MORE INTERESTING BASEBALL DON'T GIVE ME NONSENSE OF HOW IT GETS RID OF STRATEGY

TALK ABOUT HAVING TO DECIDE WHETHER TO LEAVE YOUR RELIEVER IN TO PITCH TO THE BOTTOM OF THE ORDER IN WHY ISN'T THAT ON THE PITCHERS GETTING BETTER AT HITTING THE NBA DIDN'T SAY YOU CAN'T INTENTIONALLY FOUL IN THE LAST THREE MINUTES WE DON'T HAVE A DESIGNATED FIELDER RULE IT IS ON THE ORGANIZATION

THE ORGANIZATION MADE THE PITCHERS NOT ENTITIES THERE ARE LOT OF ORGANIZATIONS THAT HAVE CRAPPY FIELDERS WHO DON'T HAVE THEM WORK ON THEIR DEFENSE BUT THEY STILL HAVE TO PLAY WE HAVE TO WATCH AIR MAILED BALLS INTO THE 4th ROW WHY NOT HAVE A DESIGNATED FIELDER IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE? WHY DON'T WE DO THAT? I THINK WE ARE ARGUING ABOUT THE WRONG THING WHEN IT COMES TO THIS EXCHANGE OF A DESIGNATED HITTER FOR A PITCHER FACING THREE BATTERS I AM INTERESTED IN THAT CONVERSATION BECAUSE THE DH, THERE IS SO LITTLE DIFFICULT

FOR THE NATIONAL LEAGUE, WHY LAST YEAR TOP 10 TEAMS IN BATTING AVERAGE, GO BACK TO 1997, 52% TO 48% INNER-LEAGUE PLAY WHEN IT COMES TO WINNING PERCENTAGE THERE IS SUCH LITTLE DIFFERENCE TELL YOU WHAT, LET THE PITCHERS HIT AND PUT IN A DH I DON'T CARE THE MOST INTERESTING CONVERSATION IS WHAT IS THE ANGLE TO HAVING THIS PITCHER GO OUT THERE AND HAVE TO FACE THREE BATTERS

WHAT IF HE FACES TWO? IS THE THIRD GUY WALKED? WHAT IS THE WHAT IF? I DON'T THINK IT IS THAT DIFFERENTIAL BETWEEN THE AL AND THE NL OF COURSE IT IS BUT, I WOULD MAKE THE TRADE I WOULD PUT THE DH IN THE NL TO GET THE PITCHER RULE IF YOU GO A BASEBALL GAME YOU SEE A LINE UP WITH EIGHT HITTERS IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE AND NINE IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE

I HEARD YOU SAY, YOU ARE A NATIONAL LEAGUE GUY, YOU COVER THE PIRATES, I DON'T KNOW, WHEN YOU WATCH AN AMERICAN LEAGUE GAME, YOU GOT TO NOTICE THEIR STRATEGY ABOUT HOW TO MAKE SUBITUTION AROUND THE DESIGNATED HITTER WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL? I AM A BELIEVER IF NINE GUYS PLAY THEY SHOULD ALL HIT 20 YEARS FROM NOW ALL CATCHERS STINK AT HITTING ALL WE GOING TO HAVE A DESIGNATED HITTER FOR THEM TOO? I DON'T KNOW I AM ONE OF THESE WEIRD GUYS THAT LIKE THE DIFFERENCE IN RULES BETWEEN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE AND THE NATIONAL LEAGUE WE HAVE TO GO TO A BREAK

WHEN WE COME BACK, EARLY SEASON
