Rick Ankiel's "Ruthian" Journey 

With 19 home runs through June 21st, Rick Ankiel has been the offensive star for the 2007 Memphis Redbirds. St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Joe Strauss calls Ankiel's transition from the pitching mound (where he won 11 games for St. Louis in 2000) to the outfield "Ruthian."

High praise, indeed, for someone who makes his living playing baseball. Read Strauss’ profile here.
