Well, I know which game I'm watching tonight. As Joe Strauss writes, Rick Ankiel is back, and he's starting tonight:

Manager Tony La Russa is putting him right to work. Ankiel will start in right field and bat second against Padres right-hander Chris Young.

Ankiel, 28, was leading the Pacific Coast League with 32 home runs while hitting .267 with 89 RBIs in 389 at-bats when notified Wednesday night of his promotion.
