Rick Ankiel is making another comeback - he has been hired by Fox Sports Midwest as a studio analyst for some of its Redbirds pregame and postgame shows. He's set to make his debut Tuesday, at 5:30 p.m. before the Cards play in Cincinnati, then be on hand for the following three nights as well as a few more appearances in the coming months.

Besides Ank, only one other major-leaguer has started 10 games on the mound and hit at least 50 homers in his career. And only one other person has started a postseason game as a pitcher and hit a postseason home run as a position player.

The other man in both cases — Babe Ruth.

As leadoff man for the lousy Padres, with 209 ABs - Jon Jay is hitting .301 with an OBP of .351

Well, I don't count certain players because of PEDs Razz, names like barroid, aroid, soso and mc aint on my list.....

no matter what....Hank Aaron is the All-Time HR King...Pete Rose is the All-Time Hit King

the Legit list has to be Aaron, Ruth, Mays, Griffey, Thome, Robinson, Pujols, Killebrew, Jackson, Schmidt

(Note: List can be edited at any time depending on new facts relating to players who cheat)

Jon Jay out indefinitely with a broken forearm. He had been hitting .296/.345/.407 and leading the NLin doubles (3rd in MLB).

I never knew you felt so strongly on the PED issue, CF4L. :)

I expect Fernando Rodney to make it. He's allowed 1 earned run in about 30 innings of work as their closer.

He has a 1270 ERA+ right now. So basically, he's been over 12x better than the average MLB pitcher this year.

Jay was a nice trade chip, so we'll see where that goes now.

As for the all-star game. Will Myers has a real shot, but Rodney is probably the guy.

Rodney should be a slam dunk. Myers (.284, 18 HR, 53 RBI) and Pomeranz (2.76 ERA, 7-7, 1.13 WHIP) are guys on the verge for me.

I think Myers might be locked out because of the depth of deserving first basemen (Rizzo, Freeman, Belt, and Goldschmidt).
