Will Leitch Cannot Believe No One Asked Him To Participate In A Discussion About Rick Ankiel


Various St. Louis media types were recently asked to provide their thoughts for a column in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch about the future of Rick Ankiel as a Cardinal, since the emergence of rookie Colby Rasmus likely means that the free agent will not be re-signed by the team.

Honestly I could not care less about what happens to Rick Ankiel. Personally, I think the whole story about his redemption from disgraced pitcher to servicable outfielder was a tad overblown, to say the least.

I do care, however, about the sensitivity of one Will Leitch. He would have been a worthy addition to any discussion regarding Rick Ankiel, given his obsessive, unhealthy man-crush on the centerfielder.

Shame on you, St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
