Guess Who Might Be Coming to Syracuse?

According to Federal Baseball, the Nats have signed veteran player Rick Ankiel to a minor league contract.

Ankiel played in Syracuse late June/early July last year.

He looks good in the Chiefs uniform, don't you think?

Don't know who he is? Let me refresh you.

According to Wikipedia, Ankiel "is the first player since Babe Ruth to have won at least 10 games as a pitcher and also hit at least 50 home runs. Ankiel is also the only player other than Babe Ruth to both start a postseason game as a pitcher and hit a home run in the postseason as a position player."

How cool would that be? I say very cool.
