Card of the Day: 2/15/16

2010 Peak Performance Relics Rick Ankiel

The frustration that built up, it seems like it was really eroding my spirit and starting to affect my personality off the field. It just became apparent that it was time for me to move on and pursue becoming an outfielder. -Rick Ankiel


  1. You have to give him credit for basically resetting his career and making it all over again. David Peralta for the Dbacks did the same thing to a lesser extent since he never made the big leagues as a pitcher.

  2. Definitely. I'll always wonder how much of a role the PEDs played a part in that, though. It's too bad he lost his mojo. He was a stud pitcher.
