Double Standards

Jayson Stark takes on the Ankiel-Bonds comparison in this column at

Before Friday, was there any loser in the whole stinking country who wasn’t rooting for Ankiel? Anybody who wanted this guy to fail must also have rooted for a grizzly bear to eat Snow White for lunch just before she was about to live happily ever after.

I just gotta be me.

Random aside: Astros v. Mets tonight, top of the 2nd for the Astros. A hit, walk and HPB load the bases with 1 out, Wandy up to bat. He hits a high chopper to short that Reyes is set to field close to the bag. Reyes boots the ball off his chest, but it deflects perfectly to Castillo who was moving to cover the bag at second. Castillo catches it on the fly, fires to first, double play. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.
