Roy Hobbs Strikes Again ... And Again


Since the weekend we spent in St. Louis for Rick Ankiel's first games, we've done our best to take it easy on the coverage around here. Not because we didn't want to, but because we were afraid if we kept down that road, before we knew it, every post would be about him. And you might not like that.

As we watch Ankiel today — who has two homers and seven RBIs in the sixth inning of the Cardinals' ongoing blowout of the Pirates — we are afraid we simply cannot resist. Cardinals fans will smile when they note that Ankiel now has more homers than J.D. Drew.

We're still blown away by this. We probably always will be. More tomorrow, surely.

And this isn't the DU!AN post, by the way, so you won't have to look at that photo all night.
