Pretty good story to start your day

Remember Rick Ankiel? He was a promising pitcher with the St Louis Cardinals who inexplicably lost his control, leading to his demotion to the minors and his disapearing off the radar completely for several years.

Well, check this story line out from this morning's baseball news;

Summary: Rick Ankiel hit a three-run homer in his major-league debut as an outfielder and Joel Pineiro worked seven scoreless innings in the defending World Series champion Cardinals' 5-0 victory over the Padres.
(from ESPN)

Give me his home run last night over the one that fat-headed freak in San Francisco hit any time of the day

Check out Ankiel's big, self redeeming blast right here right now

Two side notes. I wonder is Ankiel available in my fantasy league? Also, I wonder did Boston give up way, way too fast on Joel Piniero?! Seven scoreless innings?
