    Rick Ankiel Vs. Jack Cust

    I flew from Davis, CA to Johnson City, TN a few years ago when Rick had his meltdown and was sent to the rookie league in JC (where I was a bat boy in the '70's). Even though he was batting against 19 year olds, I was impressed with how he didn't show any fear after such a public breakdown and was absolutely crushing the ball. Kept up with him and got him off waivers when he came up last year. Don't think last year was a fluke, but I may still vote against him, because, even though he has shown some huevos, I don't know how he fits into the Reds line-up.
