    DH for Janish?

    I know it's unheard of but with how well Leake swings the bat, I would have considered DH'ing for Janish tonight and just told him to deal with it.

    Of course I realize this comment may have been meant as a joke, but assuming it wasn't.... you might want to brush up on the facts regarding the DH rule. The DH can only be for the pitcher, there isn't any option to DH for a person other than the pitcher.

    From MLB rules:

    The Designated Hitter rule:
    A hitter may be designated to bat for the starting pitcher and all subsequent pitchers in any game without otherwise affecting the status of the pitcher(s) in the game. A Designated Hitter for the pitcher must be selected prior to the game and must be included in the lineup cards presented to the Umpire-in-Chief.

    By that logic, I should be able to use a DH for every position at the same time, because it says I can DH for the pitcher but it doesn't say I CAN'T DH for the pitcher, and the shortstop, and the catcher......
