      John Rocker says PED's made baseball a better game.


      John Rocker is still making noise, a decade after the disgraced pitcher last played in the big leagues.


      Rocker told a Cleveland radio station this week that performance-enhancing drugs made Major League Baseball "more entertaining" during the Steroids Era.


      Rocker told WKRK-FM on Tuesday: "Honestly, and this may go against what some people think from an ethical standpoint, I think it was the better game."


      "At the end of the day when people are paying their $80, $120 whatever it may be, to buy their ticket and come watch that game, it's almost like the circus is in town," he said.


      "They wanna see some clown throw a fastball 101 mph and some other guy hit it 500 feet. That's entertainment."


      Rocker was suspended in 2000 after making disparaging remarks.


      He later admitted he used steroids.


      The 38-year-old Rocker now works on behalf of homeless veterans.
