Like us on Facebook here

Monday, May.20, 2013

Miguel Cabrera has hit 332 HRs, 398 Doubles and 13 Triples in his 11th year in the Major Leagues. With 1170 RBI , and just barely being 30 Years of age, the man has a serious chance to chase the ALL - Time RBI record of 2297 By Hank Aaron. After his 3 HR night on Saturday, he has a 2013 3 Slash of .387/.457/1.116 (all lead the AL). He has added 11 HRs (tied for 2nd) and 47 RBI (1st in the MLB). He could challenge a 2nd straight Triple Crown in 2013. Something that hasn't happened since Honus Wagner in the 1920's

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!

Cabrera’s mammoth night May.19th/2013

Yonder Alonso is finally showing the kind of power the Padres thought he could when they acquired his services in the Mat Latos Trade.  He has hit .289/.335/.789 in 43 Games Played - with 6 HRs and 26 RBI sol far. Alonso has had back to back games with a dinger, helping the Padres take the last 2 games versus the Nationals in a weekend series.  The Padres are now only 4.5 Games Behind the DBacks in the NL West after going 18 - 13 in their last 31 Games

The Padres are now only 4.5 Games Behind the DBacks in the NL West after going 18 – 13 in their last 31 contests.  It seems that moving in the fences at Petco Park have helped the mindset of the players.  Alonso only hit 9 HRs for the whole campaign in 2012.

HR Notes May 19th/2013

Is there a better hitter in the game right now than Miguel Cabrera?  With apologies to Joey Votto and Ryan Braun, I just don’t think so.  Cabrera is putting up historic numbers – and he is improving every year if that is humanly possible.

Miguel Cabrera is only 1127 Career RBI behind Hank Aaron now.   If he puts a bunch of 125 RBI+ years, he may have a chance to run down the ALL – Time RBI leader. He is also vying to be the 1st MLB player with back to back Triple Crown wins since Honus Wagner.

Cabrera moved all the way up to tied for 2nd in the AL with HRs on the day.

It was a light day of HRs across the board due to great pitching performances.

Yonder Alonso and Matt Joyce are the only 2 players to have a Multi day HR consecutive streak. 

20 Players will try for HRs today in prolonging their streak.

There were 22 HRs hit in 14 Games for a total of 1.57 HRs per game or 0.79 HRs per club

Matt Joyce is about as underrated as they come.  After starting out this year slow, the 28 Year Old from Tampa, FL (hometown boy) has hit .275/.375/.969 in the last 28 days, spanning 22 Games Played.  Joyce has hit 6 HRs, Scored 18 Runs while also driving in 17 RBI.  He creams RHP, with an OPS of .933, and he is only 1 - 18 (.056) vs LHP.  Maddon knows he is best as a Platoon Player.

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/
