  • Rick Ankiel Drank Before his 2001 Debut, and that’s Pretty Cool

    On Monday the Washington Post ran a piece about Rick Ankiel and his alcohol abuse. Okay, the term “alcohol abuse” may be a stretch, but in the piece the former Cardinal pitcher/outfielder (kinda like Babe Ruth but way shitter) admitted to take some shots of vodka before his first...
