Ironically, John Rocker spent his last day with the Atlanta Braves at Shea Stadium before being traded to the Cleveland Indians on Friday. As Pinqouin describes above, games with the Mets, rides on the New York subways and Rocker's mouth, is where all of his trouble began. He was informed of his trade after Friday's game against the Mets. The Braves received relievers Steve Karsay and Steve Reed and cash for Rocker and minor league third baseman Troy Cameron. It remains to be seen who got the better deal.
But Bobby Cox sure seemed happy on Friday Night
