John Rocker is a proud American/closer who shoots from the hip and has 88 career saves (an all time record). He is regarded as a civil rights activist who was always pushing for change. He once called his teammate, Randall Simon, a "fat monkey" and he was correct in doing so. After this comment Randall looked himself in the mirror and saw that he was spinning out of control and 6 weeks later Randall lost 35 pounds. When Randall's cat had kittens he named one of them Little John Rocker as a thank you for opening up his eyes.
