The anti-Franklin? Rick Ankiel thanks the fans of St. Louis

4 Comments

Ryan Franklin may be on the outs with the fans of St. Louis, but a former Cardinal — Rick Ankiel — is in warm fuzzy land.

In town as an opposing player for the first time, Ankiel took out a full-page ad in the sports section of the Post-Dispatch on Tuesday, thanking Cardinals fans for their support over the years.

And given Ankiel’s tumultuous¬†career path, he needed the support. He got it and it seems he’s grateful for it.
