Default John Rocker at rock bottom

This is funny and sort of sad.

Also, when did he start looking like the guitarist from STP?

Hall of Fame weekend brings out a ton of former big leaguers. From Hall of Famers to Pete Rose…it’s a veritable smorgasbord of All-Stars from years past.

This year, however, is a little different. Probably thinking there’s a way to cash in on the glut of Atlanta Braves fans making the trip north…there’s also John Rocker. And, sure, it’d be easy to suspect that Rocker is in town to support his former teammates Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine and skipper Bobby Cox, but, it’s Rocker…and we know that’s not how dude operates.

Rocker (alongside another former Brave Ryan Klesko) was holding down his patch of sidewalk selling books, posing for pictures, signing autographs and, naturally, telling folks to “Speak English”.





And WTF is Ryan Klesko doing hanging with him? He must be pretty desperate to be a Rocker groupie

Pretty sad. I thought his (NYC) comments were probably blown out of proportion at the time, but damn, hard to defend "Speak English."

Yeah what's up with that tshirt at the All Star Game. I wonder what 50% of MLB players would say to him. Plus he looks like a meth tweeker. Dude has his name tag and raffle info taped on an upturned cardboard box. What a basket case

Klesko hasn't really changed much. He was my favorite player growing up and why I always was #18. Rocker was a kick ass guy in his day. I'll never forget when the braves went to to play at NY and it was battery night at the park and all the fans started throwing batteries at him as he walked out of the bullpen.

I remember that as well! That's hilarious, I probably would have bought a couple for the opportunity to go get a liquor drink with Rocker.

He's a ball player, not a politician. He was paid to throw a baseball, not negotiate peace talks or solve the energy crisis.
