  • John Rocker, whipping boy He was torched for talking about New York the way baseball executives do. But he'd still be in the majors if he'd been getting people out. By Allen Barra I must be the only person in America who believes the Atlanta Braves. I think the only reason John Rocker is currently pitching for East Podunk is because he has been pitching lousy for the Braves. Never, ever forget that professional athletes are property, and as long as a property has value its owner isn't going to discard it. Ask Latrell Sprewell.

    66. In The Batter's Box - Eric LeBlanc - Baseball Column - Steroids - John Rocker -
    But these two are the perfect ones to get caught for baseball in general. In other news, john rocker is back and in Long Island of all places.

    Sports Lifestyles Editorial ... Home April 16, 2005 In the Batter's Box
    with Eric LeBlanc More steroids, John Rocker and fighting at Fenway Alex Sanchez? Jorge Piedra? I think those pushing Major League Baseball for tougher steroid penalties were looking for some better first culprits than these two. Sanchez looks more like a stick than a He-Man. And most people are just thinking who is Jorge Piedra. But these two are the perfect ones to get caught for baseball in general. The MLB has had enough of its top players getting bogged down in the steroid scandal. From Barry Bonds, Jason Giambi and Gary Sheffield to Mark McGwire, baseball's elite have taken a big hit. Making examples of two relative unknowns is just what the doctor ordered for PR purposes. The policy gets legitimized. The fans are not hurt by another fallen hero. And since these two players are not big stars, they can continue their careers as if nothing happened. Sanchez made his return Thursday in center field and in the three hole for the Devil Rays and was two for three with three runs scored. Like I said. It's just like it never happened. I'm not saying that the testing is rigged or that star players are getting exemptions. But until a star is identified as a steroid user by the testing, I don't think these results will be readily accepted by the critics.

    Associated Press
    Published on: 04/28/05 CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. John Rocker once said retirement would beat playing for a New York team. Now, the metropolitan area he slammed so hard provides the setting for a comeback bid. Rocker, who missed nearly two years after undergoing surgery for a torn rotator cuff, is back in baseball with the suburban Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League. His debut was awful. Rocker walked four batters in the ninth inning and lost 4-3 Thursday night to the Bridgeport Bluefish. While pitching for the Atlanta Braves in 1999, the left-handed reliever made derogatory remarks in Sports lllustrated about gays, minorities and foreigners. Rocker later tried to explain himself by saying he was baiting New York fans. EMAIL THIS
    Now they're his fans theoretically.

    Jerr, I think Rocker is a very high quality pitcher, but he should know better than to spew forth garbage like that to a reporter. It is one thing to say dumb, stupid things to the fellas at the bar, but a different story to "go idiot" to the media. Rocker is an idiot who is a good baseball player. Just my opinion. Rocker has his, I have mine. By the way, there are a lot of really neat players in the league, like Alex Rodriguez, Edgar Martinez, and Tony Gwinn. Too bad Rocker gets more press than he deserves.

    ... Tarot Archive Links Links Link to StarIQ About Us Affiliate Programs ... Privacy Statement Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker wound up and threw his best verbal pitch at Sports Illustrated last December. Worse than giving up a home run, Rocker demonstrated an amazing case of athlete’s foot-in-mouth. Recently, Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig tossed Rocker out of the game until the first of May. John Rocker’s tirade against homosexuals, minority ethnic groups and foreigners all but destroyed his promising, rising career with the team of the 90s and maybe the new Millennium. Not a Diplomatic Libra At first glance, Rocker’s (October 17, 1974; Statesboro, Georgia) five planets in Libra belie his less-than-diplomatic outpouring of social slurs. Libra usually bends to social graces, appropriate behavior and deferring opinions in consideration of the feelings of others. But look at Rocker’s Libra lineup. Behind him on the infield of his chart stand powerfully passionate Pluto , delicately balancing Venus , combustible Mars , the blazing Sun and rocky Uranus . This combination is no genteel tea party, even though it’s in the sign of Libra.

    Sack John Rocker, Turner Told
    J M Shenoy Indian Americans joined fellow Americans in criticizing the decision of baseball officials for ordering loudmouth pitcher John Rocker to undergo psychological testing. "This man has poison in his heart, and he hates minorities, including Indian immigrants," said Indian community leader Subhash Razdan. Sending him to a psychiatrist will be like treating cancer with aspirin, a Rocker critic said. Rocker had made derogatory comments about Indians and other Asians, gays and lesbians in an interview with Sports Illustrated. His remarks were confined to his visit to New York a few months ago. The 25-year-old Rocker painted New Yorkers as degenerates and criminals, and sneered at immigrants, saying, "I'm not a very big fan of foreigners." "How the hell did they get in this country?" he asked. Subhash Razdan, who is also a Census 2000 official in Atlanta, joined thousands of others who had demanded that Ted Turner, the media mogul who owns the Atlanta Braves, either suspend Rocker or sack him for his bigotry. "Atlanta is a cosmopolitan city, and it is sad that someone who lives in this city should make racist remarks," Razdan said.

    Is John Rocker in the house?
    Javascript disabled. Cannot display HTML ad. By: Steve Scholfield - North County Times Monday morning musings: David Wells is off his rocker.
    And I don't mean John Rocker, although the two left-handers have one thing in common: They talk without thinking. Wells, the former Padres pitcher, was asked his opinion about Texas Rangers pitcher Kenny Rogers' assault of two cameramen. Here is what Wells told the Boston Herald about the incident: "The camera guy wasn't hurt. He went to the hospital and pretended he was hurt. He's winking at another (cameraman), going 'Yeah, I'm going to get paid.' The guy's a (expletive) idiot pardon my French but guys do that. It's unbelievable.
    "Be a man and take it, unless he was physically hurt and something happened."
    In Wells' world, it is OK to hit someone just because that person is in the way.

    73. Pigdog Journal (Bad People) -- John Rocker Gets A Standing Ovation
    John Rocker Gets a Standing Ovation
    By Baron Earl
    Bad People
    My favorite Star Track is the one where Bilbo killed the Klingons with his magic sword.
    Mr. Bad Main



    This morning, before heading into work, I was watching Mornings on 2 , a local TV news program. I was trying to get a traffic update before heading out onto the Bay Area's freeway system. While I'm watching, the TV talking heads report that John Rocker received a standing ovation when he returned to the pitching mound last night in Florida. What's more, NO ONE on the news team can figure out WHY. In an interview with Sports Illustrated Magazine two months ago, Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker repeatedly made racist, homophobic, and xenophobic remarks. As a result, he's been reviled by the mainstream press and also received a 14 game suspension which will start at the beginning of the next season. Back to Mornings on 2 … After reporting that Rocker got a standing ovation, the "news team" starts speculating on just why it is that this happened. They speculate that the crowd is "anti-media" and they're showing their support for the underdog. They speculate that the crowd is applauding the public apology that Rocker made weeks after the original interview. They EVEN speculate that the crowd is full of free speech advocates, and they're showing their support for Rocker's first amendment rights. I couldn't believe they could be so dense, so I got on-line and started checking other mainstream news sources. ALL OF THEM seem puzzled by the crowd's reaction. None seem to be able to figure it out.

    The one stereotype John Rocker hurt the most was the southerner. John Rocker is not a mean man. He is an insensitive dumb southern yahoo that lacks social skills and intelligence. The old redneck southerner is alive and well and living inside John Rocker.
    Some feel he should be punished for his statements. Major League Baseball has in the past suspended owner Marge Schott for her statements and will have too do the same to Rocker. I would urge the league as punishment to have the Braves trade John Rocker to the Mets and give him the choice of retiring as he said he would if traded to New York or playing there and learning from New Yorkers about the positives other cultures contribute in an advanced society. Let him choose his punishment, retire or live and play in New York. That would be great. Rocker in a Mets uniform and the Mets fans having to throw their batteries somewhere else as they cheer for the man they love to hate. Now that is poetic justice.

    John Rocker interview excerpt...
    John Rocker replaces Newt Gingrich as Poster Boy for the Satanic
    Church of the American Flag - The Starrs and Barrs rejoice!!

    John Rocker agreed to have his brains examined after his disparaging comments about almost everyone except white males. While we have some First Amendment concerns about Major League Baseball bothering John about being such a jerk, his having spoken out loud and saying what most "got mine, to hell with everybody else Americans" think but don't say out loud in this politically correct world was worth the price - an admission of sorts and certainly an insight to the white male American psyche's racism, sexism, bigotry, ethnocentricity and homophobic freedom of expression.
    Out of context or not, Rocker told SI, "Imagine having to take the Number 7 train to the ballpark, looking like you're riding through Beirut next to some kid with purple hair next to some queer with AIDS right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It's depressing."
    "The biggest thing I don't like about New York are the foreigners. I'm not a very big fan of foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English. Asians and Koreans and Vietnamese and Indians and Russians and Spanish people and everything up there. How the hell did they get in this country?" Rocker also took a verbal shot at Japanese women who drive Toyotas. It could even be suggested Rocker might be unpatriotic for his blasting four-time losers. The criminal justice industry in this country, namely lawyers, judges, prison guards and construction companies could know no such boon without crime generally, the war on drugs specifically and a whole lot of people getting busted more than once.

    The University of North Carolina Press

    Although most young peopleas is the case with their eldersare supportive of freedom of speech/press in general, the same is not true when one considers First Amendment questions in specific circumstances. The author suggests that popular culture examples, such as the controversy surrounding the recent diatribe of major league pitcher John Rocker, can assist the social studies teacher in helping students move beyond what are, in fact, meaningless generalities. If this does not happen, the author argues, young peoplelike their elderswill abandon support for First Amendment freedoms at the slightest provocation. Search Journals About MUSE Contact Us
