You are, I think, missing Ump25's point.

He's repeating what McCarver said ("the pitcher must bat in the DH's spot") and sarcasticly asking, "Is this a rules change?" to make the point that McCarver messed it up.

I'll only add that the volume level on my TV, at least, goes down as well as up.

Of course, I've been home and awake only enough to see about 4 innings total of the playoffs.
