1989 Topps Major League Debut #106: Bobby Rose
PHOTO: He's got the Michael Jackson look going on.
STAT: Get this...Rose hit only 5 major league homers but TWO of them were pinch-hit jobs off the late Steve Howe. And two of his other jacks were off Randy Johnson and Jack McDowell. He should be proud of that resume, limited as it may be.
ANAGRAM: Bob Rose, Angels = Enlarges boobs
Rose, one of the few majors leagues with that surname who wasn't either a gutless cheat or terrible player, was nevertheless only average in bits of four seasons in the majors.
