Horrible, horrible, horrible. Was once the most highly touted pitching prospect in the Red Sox organization. Now he's a mop up man for the Devil Rays. The Mets traded for him as a favor to Mark Leiter, who was traded again by Colorado to Milwaukee.

One of the worst player I've ever met, will be pissed off if you ask him for autograph, latest I heard was he need Tommy John surgery around october, he won't pitch again till 2003

Well, as a personal friend of his, I can tell you if the Red Sox took care of his arm like they should have then you wouldn't be saying the above comments. The team was hassling over a surgery for one of their top prospects, who was 18-3 in Pawtucket just prior. Might add he also got the win in the All star game that year. It's easy to criticize when you don't have the facts, he could be a decent starter pulling down 10 wins a season but Boston did what they do best, waste quality players. I used to catch for him, trust me, you couldn't touch him on your best day, Peace.

Talk about bad timing. The Mets shoehorned Rose onto the roster at the start of the 2001 season, by DL'ing Rick White, in the hopes that they could outright him to Norfolk. The day after they finally designated Rose for assignment, Leiter got hurt, and the Mets needed a starter, which would have been Rose. Instead, Brett Hinchliffe got the call and got rocked, and then Dickey Gonzalez got the rest of the time in Leiter's absence, while Rose was claimed off waivers by the Devil Rays, and pitched poorly there for a while.

Rose was not a Met long enough for me to have a strong sense of how good he may have been if he got a full audition. He had at least one terrible outing and at least one really good one.

Well, I'm Brian Rose too. He's a great athlete, even though he might not be the best, I find it funny that you people berate him. I happen to be a Brian Rose too, and we Brian Rose's are pretty cool. You complain about him, but I bet he can pitch better than you. - Brian Rose

I only remember one game in which Brian Rose pitched, and that's because he gave up what seemed like a ton of home runs. Further research reveals that game was his first as a New York Met, on April 6, 2001. Three home runs against Montreal. Oy.
