Decent stats on the attendance and runs/pitching, but...
Are five WS titles in 38 seasons really considered dominating?? If not, you would not have to exclude the Yankees. Also, if the emphasis is on WS titles, don't forget that since the DH is only used in AL parks, approximately half the games don't even use the DH, and in NL parks, wouldn't the NL have the advantage having their pitchers hit since they do it all year??Since the introduction of the DH in 1973 the AL has won 21 WS and the NL has won 16. Five of those 21 were the Yanks and they are in a league of their own as they have dominated the WS before and after the DH. Take them out and both have won 16 since the DH
If both the AL and NL were not using the DH, why again would you have to exclude the Yankees?? Just because they won a lot??Prior to the DH the AL won 41 WS (22 by the Yanks alone) and the NL won 28. Take the Yanks out and it is 19 to 28. Not much has changed since the DH introduction so the DH has had little affect on changing the superiority of one league over the other when it comes to WS championships.
