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

Ankiel Ad

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.
