No one lets the big HR hitters take time off duing the innings when his team are in the field, despite the fact he's a slow, lumbering log who couldn't catch a bus.
Would you like to see a baseball team made up of 9 heavy hitters who bat, and 9 whizz kids in the field? Look - if they're the rules, they're the rules. It's just not how I like to see a game played.

(Correct - I don't like the DH, in case you're wondering. Pitchers have 2 arms - they can swing a bat. And they did without any serious issues for nearly 100 years in pro ball.)
If you want to watch badly-performing athletes, just watch the minor leagues. Or the XFL in a little bit.
