Thursday May.16/2013

Ibanez had 1004 RBI in the last 11 Years and he clubbed  338 of those from 2006-2008 with the Mariners.  He is likely to see around 350-400 AB this year.  Ibanez has hit HRs in consecutive days - hitting 1 HR on Tuesday versus the Yankees - before exploding for a Grand Slam and a 2 run shot yesterday versus his old Yankees Teammates.  He is currently on a 5 Games Hitting Streak ( 8 - 19, .421) with 5 HRs and 12 RBI

DH on our home site pages – Stands for Daily HR Hitters in the Majors.

We are going to run the gauntlet on the previous days HRs for all MLB Players.

I loved it when MLB XM Radio used to do a running total every night on their Roundtrip with Mike Ferrin (Laser Show).  So I am bringing it every day on this website.  To view every nights big boppers for the whole year (from May 8th on) visit the DH page!

Click beyond the Youtube link or click  the READ THE REST OF THIS ENTRY ICON to see who hit yesterdays big flies.

dam Dunn is going for the "Rob Deer Award" for about a .160 BA - with 30+ HRs.  He has hit big flies in two straight games and has 9 HRs for the year.  His 3 Slash Line still remains a paltry  .155/.250/.646 for the year - yet is continually hit in the cleanup spot by Robin Ventura.  For as much as he was named the AL Comeback Player of The Year for 2012 - hit last 365 Days reads a 3 Slash of ..181/.304/.721 - with 38 HRs and 86 RBI.  The man's Career with the White Sox is .181/.309/.694

Shin-Soo Choo has got to be among the early favorites for the NL MVP Award.  He is hitting for a 3 Slash of .322é.465/1.054 - plus he leads the NL in OBP, OPS, OPS +, Runs Scored (33), WAR (+2.6), Runs Created (45), Times on Base (86) - and Hit By Pitch (12), where he is on a historic pace.  Not a bad 1st 39 Games Played

Shin-Soo Choo has got to be among the early favorites for the NL MVP Award. He is hitting for a 3 Slash of .322/.465/1.054 – plus he leads the NL in OBP, OPS, OPS +, Runs Scored (33), WAR (+2.6), Runs Created (45), Times on Base (86) – and Hit By Pitch (12), where he is on a historic pace. Not a bad 1st 39 Games Played.  Choo has provided almost double the production from the Leadoff spot that Cincinnati had from last year.  He will have to keep these numbers up as he is not a very good defensive player.  Voters will hold that against him for the MVP Award.

There were 33 HRs hit in 15 Games or a 2.20 HRs per game (1.10 per team) for May 15th

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at https://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
