Yet more evidence in support of abolishing the designated hitter rule in MLB

Andy Pettitte, the American League pitcher hitting only because the World Series game was being played in a National League park, singled home the tying run in the 5th inning of last night's Game 3.

Was it expected? No. Was it flukey? Sure? Was it exciting? Definitely. (And, ket's note, as an NL guy, I'm rooting for the Phillies!)

It's the way baseball should be played -- everybody pulling his weight on both sides of the ball (to mix my sports metaphors), not some slugger hitting a home run then sitting down for a nice rest without worrying about playing defense.

And don't even get me started on those WILD CARD teams...oy.
