There’ve been discussions all this week.
Surprise! The owners want to tweak.
The object of their discussion?
The American League custom—
The DH, aged forty-two.
Now they want to make it true—
Thinking, of course, of revenue—
In the National League purview.
Clearly, envy of the NFL—
Where points and cash are scored pell-mell—
Is coloring this discussion.
Hopefully, this “alteration”
Of baseball’s unique separation
Will merit no consideration.
