Step aside Peyton, otherwise Mr. Ankiel might take your head off. If you didn’t catch Rick “Wild Thing” Ankiel’s assists from last night against the Rockies, do yourself a favor and check out the videos/links below. For a guy that probably couldn’t hit a catcher’s mitt from 60’6″ to save himself from castration, he sure does have an uncanny knack for nailing runners at 3rd; from, ohhh, say 300′-350′. Ironic I suppose, and yet oddly ammusing, not to mention jaw dropping. I mean, Taveras isn’t exactly Adam Dunn running the bases out there.
The YouTube video is simply here for effect. MLB.com has a much more crisp, full flavored version. I recommend the latter. Enjoy.
