    I don't think any of those players will do it. I do agree though, that they are undervalued hitting options. If you had to have an answer, I would say Zambrano is a better option to do it.
    Could you please resist the urge to correct typos? They happen. You've done your share, yourself.

    It's not mandatory. He could indeed hit for himself, although I wouldn't count on it. Has it been done in recent years?

    A DH can only hit for the pitcher though, so the Twins couldn't have Livan Hernandez hit for Adam Everett

Owings seems like a lock, and if Zambrano can hit like he did in 2006 (6 HRs) he should be able to when all is said and done. Course, in my opinion, the only way Owings dont break it is if the Dbacks make him a fulltime position player, but I dont see that happeneing, hes pretty good pitching!

    There's been a lot of good hitting pitchers through the years. Owings is just another of them.

    Wes Ferrell and Warren Spahn have held their records for a long time, and there's a reason for that. Both had longetivity on their side. Spahn is a HOF'er, Ferrell has a good argument. To call somebody a lock this early in their career is a little short sighted.

    Dontrelle Willis has 8 career HR. But he's in the American League now. :dismay:

    No. a PH HR doesnt count as one hit as a Pitcher.

    Wes Ferrell does hold the career record with 38 and the season record with 9. WF was an AL pitcher. Spahn hit 35 and probably holds the NL career record.

    I thought Wes Ferrell held the record.

    Owings has a better chance. The compared him to Babe Ruth as a hitting pitcher, Owings was ahead in almost everything. And he's young.
