10 Ratchet MLB Player Retirements That Kenny Powers Should Put to Shame Image via USA Today Sports

John Rocker

Kenny Powers is nothing if not off-color, making him a student of John Rocker. If you aren't familiar with Rocker's, um, work, here's an excerpt from a comment he made about the possibility of playing the Big Apple:

"The biggest thing I don't like about New York are the 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?"

You get the idea. Rocker has verbally fallen off the rocker more than once by vomiting racism. He once called his African American teammate Randall Simon a "fat monkey." He defended former manager Ozzie Guillen's use of homophobic language, saying, "This is a free country. If he wants to use a lewd term, he should be able to use a lewd term." 

Powers is going to need to up the ante in the show's fourth season in order to trump Rocker. But we're sure it would be a challenge that Powers wouldn't mind taking on.
