    The double take from the first guy ( looking back at Ankiel in disbelief ) is kind of funny.

    A former pitcher that couldn't throw a strike to save his life....

    Re: Video Rick Ankiels two lightning bolts

    Great throws, but i could almost see them being called safe on both throws. Pretty close.

    Re: Video Rick Ankiels two lightning bolts

    Just think, if only the pitcher's mound was 300 feet away, he may still be pitching...that is seriously impressive though. Ankiel's whole story is impressive.

    Re: Video Rick Ankiels two lightning bolts

    The staff still says he is the best pitcher on the roster. In warmups and other practice activites, he pitches circles around the others. His curveball literally makes a buzzing sound due to the laces spinning in the air. He "coaches" the younger pitchers.

    This is all per LaRussa.

    Obviously he is not mentally prepared to be a pitcher, for whatever reason.

    it is a great story, and great play, but unfortunately he will always be tainted with growth hormone use.
