MLB Rule Changes: A Universal DH Proposal

Rob Manfred is on a roll with all of his changes to baseball… except are they all good for the game? Don’t even get me started on how much I dislike the “proposed 7-team playoff format”. The 3-batter minimum, being implemented this year, is going to completely change baseball. How many pitchers are going to come in and be off their game? What happens if someone walks three straight batters instead of being pulled after one or two like usual? Can guys typically used as LOOGYs, like Jerry Blevins, get through complete innings or will this end their career?
