I so needed a moment like this after all the crap that has happened in sports lately. Rick Ankiel returned to the Cardinals as an outfielder and hit a three run homer in his debut.

Granted it may not last, depending on how he does over the long haul. But for tonight I feel so damn happy for that kid. I remember starting to follow his career when he was in the minors, striking out people at a crazy rate. Seeing his pitches for the first time and realizing he had devastating stuff. And then watching it all fall apart.

If anyone deserved a moment like this it's him.

I have literally never seen Tony La Russa happier than after that homer. It's waaaaaaaaaaaay too early to count on Rick as a starter next year, but this is a good start. He, Duncan and Ludwick could make a great young infield in '08 if the Cards can unload Encarnacion and Edmonds, even if they must eat part of their salaries (and they'll have too.)

Its too bad the roster spot was open because of Spezio having personal problems.

On the contrary, I'd say from a baseball POV ANY reason to move Scott Spiezio off your roster is a good one.

Between Ankiel, Josh Hamilton, and Barry Bonds, this could have one of the all-time feel-good summers for baseball. Oh well, two of three, as the song goes, ain't bad.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Don't forget Kerry Wood! He's looked pretty solid since he came back too. Granted he's only pitched three innings, but he's been solid!

Ankiel's just belted TWO MORE against the Dodgers this afternoon! I know he didn't come back until August, but can we just give HIM the Comeback Player of the Year award?

Simple. Florida packed fans into Pro Player back in 1997 with a winning team. If Milwaukee CAN win, then maybe they'll try, since that would sell out even old County Stadium.
