NL and the Designated Hitter

Yankees boss Hank Steinbrenner had some choice words for the National League and its fans today after his ace Chien-Ming Wang injured himself running the bases during non-DH interleague play:

"My only message is simple. The National League needs to join the 21st century. They need to grow up and join the 21st century... I've got my pitchers running the bases, and one of them gets hurt. He's going to be out. I don't like that, and it's about time they address it. That was a rule from the 1800s."

My only reaction is: If a guy can't even run the bases without injuring himself, he has no business as a professional athlete.
