I was amazed at his audacity in trying to knock the ball out of firstbaseman Eric Karros' mitt in the 2003 playoffs. To Bobby Cox's and the Braves' credit, they released him not long after that, making it clear they didn't want that kind of player on their club.
I'll never forget the beer shower he got in the bullpen when he came out of that 2000 brawl. That was poetic.
