Cardinals Nickname Poll: Rick Ankiel Official Results


It's official -- and by a landslide. Rick Ankiel is hereby christened "Swingin' Dick"!

A whopping 63% of respondents favored the "Swingin' Dick" handle for the Cardinals' slugging outfielder. Coming in a distant second: "Ammerin Ank," with 20% percent of the vote.

And remember: It's not too late to cast your ballot for this week's nickname poster boy, Joe Mather. Think of it this way: If we come up with a really fine nickname for him, maybe it'll hasten his return to the majors. (Recapturing his stroke wouldn't hurt.)
