DH Coming to National League?

While talks of the designated hitter coming to the National League have been flirted with in the past, no such change has ever come to Major League Baseball.  This is due to many reasons, mostly because it's a tradition, and new commissioner Rob Manfred himself has said "its the single most important feature that defines the differences between the two leagues".  Baseball has always been about tradition, and I think in part that is why less and less people are watching it each year.  It is still and will probably always be my favorite sport, but some changes may have to take place to get new generations to keep watching.
