So, I get the gist from comments on this site as well as, oh, everywhere else that the AL has an advantage on the NL. Certainly interleague play has proven this is true. My question is, why do you think this happened?
Is it because the Yankees, and teams like them, bought up a bunch of talent that remained in the league? Did other teams follow their methods and start bringing talent to the AL side?
Or is it the different approaches to baseball? I don't think we can blame the DH - time is split pretty evenly in interleague play between AL and NL ballparks.
Or is it all just a myth perpetuated by ESPN?
