Designated Hitter

In baseball, the designated hitter rule is the common name for Major League Baseball Rule 6.10, an official position adopted by the American League in 1973 that allows teams to designate a player, known as the designated hitter (abbreviated DH), to bat in place of the pitcher each time he would otherwise come to home plate, rather than letting the pitcher bat.

LEAGUE NOTES 2014 May 15 Hartford captured their first series win of the season by besting USMC 4-2. Game # 3 was a 20 inning affair with Hurricane Pitcher Randall Delgado, a C-Z, the last man standing in the "Cane" bullpen, throwing 10 innings, allowing just one run and emerging as the winning pitcher on David Ortiz's walk-off single. The Cowboy's Designated Hitter, Pedro Alvarez, belted three HR's in Game # 5, en-route to a 8-3 Union Station victory.

My daily summary of the 40 man roster of the Cleveland Indians: Player 19A of the Cleveland Indians 40 man roster - Jason Giambi - Designated Hitter was signed as a free agent prior to the 2013 season. He was originally drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 2nd Round round of the 1992 baseball draft. He has played in the majors from 1995-2013 for the Athletics, New York Yankees, Colorado Rockies and the Indians. His major league stats are BA .278 OBP .400 SLG .519 HR 438 RBI 1,436 SB 20 Runs 1,224. Listed as 19A since he was added to the 40 man roster and Frank Herrmann was released

Maybe this is just self-justification, but... I think that if you do not feel like a failure a lot of the time, then you are probably not doing it right. If you never feel like a failure at all, then you probably are not doing much of anything. I like baseball because the metaphysics of the sport mirrors life. I may be a part of a team, but I have stand up, walk out, and face the pitcher all by myself. No one can bat for me! (And the Designated Hitter does not undermine this because I do not get his stats when he bats -- he bats for himself in place of me.) The thing about baseball is that it is a marathon. There 162 games in a season and in most of those games, even the best player will fail more than he succeeds -- and the successes that come in baseball are the ones that are needed at the right time. Being successful and hitting four home runs in a game is impressive, but still somehow not as impressive or important as when you are down by three runs, it is the bottom of the ninth with two outs, bases ...
Lets play the free agent game, who's still available(I'm only going to list the guys with respectable stats to save time)! Starting Pitchers: Bronson Arroyo, A.J Burnett, Matt Garza, Tommy Hanson, Ubaldo Jimenez, Paul Maholm, Jeff Niemann, Ervin Santana, Johan Santana, Masahiro Tanaka. Left Field/Designated Hitter: Nelson Cruz, Travis Hafner, Kendrys Morales, Lyle Overbay, Mark Reynolds(hehe), Delmon Young, Michael Young. I know a lot of you want a closer too so here are the closers on the market: Jose Valverde, Fernando Rodney, Ryan Madson, Joel Hanrahan, Rafael Betancourt, Andrew Bailey. As you can see, there are still some good free agents available at positions that we could use to improve, this post may be a waste if the Orioles dont plan on pursuing any free agents but its worth noting who is still out there. -Gregg

Question: Can you be friends with folks who disagree with you on something about which you are passionate? No, not the Designated Hitter rule. (Evil, pure evil!)

Or folks who are liberal but will pull a "Bradley Manning must be convicted as a war criminal" out of nowhere. I take a lot of lumps for this. Maybe it's immature. But I just can't. These "different opinions" speak to a different worldview or temperament or SOMETHING that I can't put my finger on exactly, but something fundamental and big. In short, I'm not Bill Maher. I can't be friends with Ann Coulter. EVER. ;) What about you all? -- Cindi
It was proposed to me this weekend that I should write a baseball blog for women.

As much as I hate to admit it... And anyone who knows me knows how much I have badmouthed this rule and thought it should be abolished... I think the time may be at hand for the National League to adopt the Designated Hitter as well. Now before all you purists hang me out to dry and tar and feather me, hear me out. I have hated this rule my entire life. I do think pitchers should hit. But I think the DH has already killed the concept of hitting pitchers. Pitchers hit atrociously... even in the National League. And the days of the pitcher getting a sacrifice bunt or a sacrifice fly to advance the runner have all but disappeared. My Cubs just had a bunting tournament among the players... They had a position players bracket and a pitchers bracket. The pitchers were so amazingly bad at this, that they let a guy who works in the video room fill in for an injured pitcher, and he got the finals of the pitchers tournament. This guy doesn't even play baseball. In the final between the position players it ...
