Former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker, who's the unofficial inspiration for the mullet-maned, politically incorrect Kenny Powers of "Eastbound and Down," visited Reddit yesterday to participate in one of the social website's "Ask Me Anything" question-and-answer sessions.

It was exactly what you would hope a Q&A with the baseball player, who in 2003 ended a Major League Baseball career marked with controversial statements, would be. He got trolled. He lacked a filter. And he even answered some serious questions about baseball! Below are some pearls of wisdom and insight from the man, the myth, the Rocker (all typos have been preserved, because this is journalism, the rough draft of history).

My gay friend, Steve, just told me to tell you to go fuck yourself.

sounds like you may have some tendencies "Davy". If you weren't gay you would call yourself David...... Not that that makes you a bad person.

What did you do with all the batteries that the Mets fans threw at you during the '99 playoffs?

I give the batteries to your girlfriend for her vibrator

Thanks for apparently inspiring the character of Kenny Powers. Other than that, you can fuck right off.

What have you inspired besides numerous abortions.

What do you think of Kenny Powers?

johnrocker49, 20 hours ago
Moderately flattering. A creepy fact if you are into trivia. I was born in Bullets Country Hospital in Statesboro Georgia in 1974. Danny McBride was born in that same hospital in 1976.

Why do you have such a potty mouth?

johnrocker49, 19 hours ago
Because I've grown up dealing with despicable shitheads; so many of whom we have formally met today. If you don't like it; go and fucking do something else.
