Reminder: Rain Delay is moviug here.
This is laughable at best. First of all, this is coming from the mouth of John Rocker, yes the one and the same. This time he opens his mouth, and takes a shot at Tom Glavine.
"He's had a few comments to make against myself that I thought were out of line and really sort of unnecessary and people took his side because he was the more mainstay Braves guy," Rocker said. "I just really thought as far as reaching out to younger players and reaching out to his teammates, somebody who could 'rah-rah' in the clubhouse, really kind of stayed to himself. ... You walk past him in the hall, he wouldn't even look at you.
Honestly I figured he'd fall of the face of the earth when get got released by that indy team. But no, it seems he was out shilling himself and his appearance on that new Spike TV show, "Pros vs Joes".
"You know, to go and get something to eat and sit down at a table with him for 10 minutes after a game and you grew up idolizing him and he won't even look at you, that's rude. Maybe that's just his personality and he's a quiet guy, but to me it was rude," Rocker said.
Oh, it gets even better. Then his famous comments that were in SI in 1999 got brought up, and then he was asked again if he'd play for either New York team.
"Oh yeah, it would be fun." That was in contrast to his quotes in the Metro newspaper yesterday in which he said he wouldn't play for the Mets because of Glavine.
I'm not sure exactly how to wrap this up. This guy just leaves me speechless because of his ineptitude. Hopefully once this episode airs, he'll once again crawl under the rock that he slithered out from. As much as I hate the Yankee's and the Met's, I wouldn't wish John Rocker on them, ever.
