ESPN.com - Major League Baseball - Cardinals’ Ankiel continues to struggle

More trouble for Ankiel. I think a ticket to the minors may be in order.

It's a good thing Vlad came up and got that hit: four consecutive walks might have killed Alou.

But it is good to hear that he pitched through it and managed to go a couple more "normal" innings. At that point it became more of a rust problem, and that's something they know how to work on.

Yes, it was good to see he made it through three innings. Still, the Cardinals have some depth at starting pitching and figure to be in the playoff hunt so they cannot afford to let Ankiel work through it at the major league level. The best course of action would be to let him get out of the spotlight and regain his control.
