John Rocker returning??????????

Rocker is one of my favorite pitchers. Seriously. I would love for someone to give him and his 96 mph fastball a chance (assuming he can still get it that high).

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Please do not cry for John Rocker's return. There are billions of other people in this world that deserve more sympathy. Rocker has had a TON of chances to get back in the majors, despite his idiocy.

He did have great stuff with the Braves. Of course, John Burkett had great stuff with the Braves. But if he can get lefties out, he'll find a job. Heck, Felix Heredia has a job...


LOL. :-D I do agree with you that the need is there and some team will give him a shot if he can prove he's healthy.

Darryl Strawberry wasn't a pitcher, was he? :-D

I think I know who you're talking about though.... was it around 1980?

If you're a left-hander who can throw in the mid 90s, of course there will be a team to take a chance on you. I think AA said it best, even Felix Heredia has a job. ;-D
