It might still happen. I have to say, I personally don't like the DH, but I agree that it would be beneficial to the team as it would allow us to get Aguilar and Coop in every day.

Pretty sure a reporter was just looking for a quote, not tipping their hand regarding negotiations. I think we can expect there's no DH. It's pretty late for NL teams to be shifting their rosters around. Possible DHs have already been optioned or released. Owners would have a fit.

I think at this point, there certainly won't be one for the NL in 2021 (though with Manfred in charge, who knows).....

 

But, while I like NL play, I think it's time for the DH to come to the NL as well.  I love the occasional big pitcher hit, but the black hole spot is old.  Not to mention with the pitching rule changes (facing X number of batters, etc), as well as the ever increasing price of pitchers, there's no need for them to potentially get hurt batting or running the bases.

Of course adding the DH now would benefit the Marlins but I'd imagine most NL teams structured their rosters not expecting a DH so it would be pretty fucked up to agree to it the day before opening day.

It's hard to imagine that they won't implement it by at least next season, but I wonder if MLB video games will still give you the option to have the pitcher hit.

They always do.

After this season

It'll definitely be instituted for next season, or at the latest the season after if they want to allow a "transition" period.....but I think it'll be immediate as a bone to throw the union (15 more jobs immediately).

Didn't they institute the DH and expanded playoffs like the night before opening day last year, though?

It'd be incredibly dumb to implement the DH now.  Expanded playoffs, sure, but not the DH.

The fact there is no DH this year is the stupidest thing out there.

 

Owners holding it over the players head as some grand bargaining chip when they want it just as badly was a horrible mis fire.  

 

Players rightfully called them on that bullshit.
