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
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.
