Let Justin Verlander rake.

After Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer tweeted Thursday to ask what changes people want to see in baseball, Verlander responded by sharing his dissatisfaction with designated hitters in the American League.

.@ChrisArcher22 I'd like to see the AL and NL have the same rules. Same for everyone. I vote NL rules. #pitcherswhorake #noDHplease 🙏🏻

The Detroit Tigers hurler observed that games in the National League, where pitchers hit for themselves, tend to be shorter, a fact that surely won't go unnoticed by commissioner Rob Manfred in his efforts to speed up the sport.

.@ChrisArcher22 and NL games are usually faster. Best of both worlds. #winwin
