BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 Already sold off to Japan, and replaced with Troy O’Leary. O’Leary has none of Brown’s potential as an offensive asset as a semi-regular, but he will almost certainly be more comfortable with the job of backing up Alou and pinch-hitting in a way that Brown clearly was not. A year in Japan, and Brown will be ready to be a Royal.
2002 In a world in which corner outfielders who slug .500 don’t exactly grow on trees, it defies logic that Rosie Brown isn’t getting a shot. The Cubs burned 35 left-field starts on Delino DeShields, Michael Tucker, and Corey Patterson. In the two games that Sammy Sosa didn’t start in right field, Todd Dunwoody did. If Brown ate Don Baylor’s dog and mailed him the bones, I doubt he’d get treated much worse.
2001 Maybe we’re stubborn, but Rosie Brown looks to us like a better hitting prospect than Henry Rodriguez was when the Expos took a chance on him. Although he's not a good defensive outfielder, you'd think a team that’s accepted the shortcomings of Rodriguez, Glenallen Hill, and Brant Brown would cut him some slack. He would make a great fourth outfielder to spot start during Rondell White’s inevitable aches and pains, but he may get lost in the shuffle.
2000 Brown can flat-out hit any kind of pitching, but the Cubs need a center fielder, which is something he can't be between Sammy Sosa and Henry Rodriguez. If they decide to stick him out there just to get him playing time until Patterson comes up, Cub pitchers would have to live with plenty of triples to the gaps. The Cubs can definitely help themselves by trading Rodriguez for the best package they can get and putting Brown in left field for the next five years.
1999 Snagged from the Marlins in the minor league portion of the Rule 5 draft (he was the prize from the Braves in the Pendleton deal). Brown has been a minor steal, and dominated the ’98 Arizona Fall League. Lacks great speed or defensive skills, so he’ll go as far as his bat speed can take him.
