Raul Mondesi was struck in the knee by Tom Glavine. On his way to first, he was “discussing” with Glavine the intent of that pitch. John Rocker took exception and charged from the bullpen. Mondesi was willing to accept the challenge, but teams held them apart. What is interesting about this one is that it seems everyone in the ballpark is (and was) familiar with John rocker. After the game, Chipper Jones said a “certain member of the bullpen” should have kept his mouth shut. For a synopsis of the
steroid John Rocker induced silliness, check out this L.A. Times article.
