Now Batting, Rick Ankiel

Last night, Rick Ankiel, the St. Louis pitcher-turned-outfielder, played his first major league game since 2004. Ankiel started in right field and batted second. He hit a three-run home run in the seventh inning to push the Cards to a 5-0 win over San Diego.

Wow! I'm rooting for him. That guy has been through a lot. I hope he can play again.

I am also rooting for him. How about 7 shutout innings for the former Red Sox Joel Pinerio?

Why can't we get pitchers like that?
