Barry Bonds’ Home Run Machine

I completely agree, and have for a long time, that a batter with armor has an unfair advantage. Now to see that there is a mechanical aspect to this as well is yet another reason MLB should be ashamed of how they have handled this.

The same, though less directly, can be said for pitchers in the American League. Not having to face a reprisal from the other team after plunking or pitching inside to a batter has o have extended many games and careers for AL pitchers. Add to this not having to bat and run bases and their advantage over NL pitchers is even more outrageous.
