• Scioscia believes there could come a day when the National League and American League play by the same rules, but it isn't really necessary right now.
"I think that if Interleague Play continues to mount where they adjust the schedule and you're playing even more Interleague games, that probably would be a topic of discussion to try to get teams balanced as far as what the set of guidelines are," Scioscia said. "Right now, we're playing 10 with National League rules, and the National League teams are playing the 10 with DH. I think you can absorb that, because your teams aren't affected as much as they would be if the Interleague schedule got more robust. I think it's doable right now, but at some point it'll probably be talked about to get baseball into both sets of guidelines."
