MARLON ANDERSON Share your memories of Marlon Anderson

Anderson
Phil A. Buster
July 27, 2017
Phillies' announcer Larry Andersen was in a glorious mood after the big collapse of 2007. Andersen continuously built up artificial hatred for the Mets to create a rivalry, but made an exception for Marlon as the team he covered from the booth clinched their unexpected title. With Anderson (with an O) being a former Phils' player, Andersen (with an E) claimed that he felt sorry for "our old friend" since he had to be a part of such an experience. All people in Met Nation could have used any type of sympathy from anyone at the time. Marlon got a special kind from Larry (known as "L. A." in Philly), who seemed to pride himself on making negative comments about the Mets.

Foster
Old Fashioned Met
July 27, 2017
George had a very creative mind. As both a Red and a Met, he had a pair of sunglasses with red-tinted frames that he would wear for day games. He called them his "Rose-colored" glasses in Cincinnati in honor of one of his teammates. When he got to New York, he changed that term to "Strawberry-colored" in honor of one of his teammates. People can say what they want a about him, but Mr. Foster was a smart guy and a supportive team player.

Ishii
NYB Buff
July 27, 2017
Kaz appeared in only 105 games over four major league seasons, but he is the answer to a pretty good trivia question. Which pitcher is the all-time strikeout leader among left-handers whose last name begins with the letter I? His total of 435 is tops in this category.
